Given that the budget allocated to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which funds the non-commercial, basic medical research required to develop new medical treatments and cures, is actually lower this year than it was in 2012, it has never been more important to fight for NIH funding. To help ensure that this unique federal agency receives the resources needed to support research at universities, hospitals and other research institutions across the country, Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Robert Casey, Jr. (D-PA) are circulating a sign-on letter in support of critically needed funding for NIH.
Take action now! Contact your senators and urge them to sign on to this bipartisan letter.
