Research!America president and CEO Mary Woolley on Senate Passage of Budget Agreement

December 18, 2013

“Senate passage of the budget agreement brings us closer to restoring some of the funding lost under sequestration for medical and health research but this is a band-aid approach to solving our fiscal woes.  Our nation’s research ecosystem has been a dealt a severe blow and will need robust funding to recover from steep budget cuts that slowed medical progress.  We urge appropriators to adequately fund the National Institutes of Health and other agencies that advance scientific discovery and innovation to confront the many deadly and disabling diseases impacting our nation’s health and economy.”
