Letter to Congress Asks for Increased Spending for NIH
The Ad-Hoc Group for Medical Research, in collaboration with the Association of American Universities (AAU) drafted a letter to congress, urging them to provide NIH with the proposed $1 billion dollar increase in the Labor-HHS-Education spending bill. The increase was proposed by the administration and supported by both the House and Senate Labor-HHS-Ed subcommittees. The letter will be submitted shortly after the November elections and before both spending bills go before the full House and Senate.
