    The government would be the primary source:

    1. SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH AGENCIES

    Government agency subdivisions (of the above):

    Department of Agriculture (USDA)

    Department of Energy

    Department of Homeland Security Research

    Environmental Protection Agency

    Federal Communications Commission

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

    National Institute of Standards and Technology

    National Institutes of Health

    National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

    National Science Foundation http://www.nsf.gov/

    Patent and Trademark Office

    U.S. Geological Survey

    2. COLLEGES FUND SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

    3. PRIVATE FOUNDATIONS (especially to do with illnesses, I saw one for asthma, for example)
