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)
