Medical research is at risk in our nation. So too is prevention research, as well as the research needed to combat disease outbreaks, weed out costly inefficiencies and deadly errors from our health care system. Sequestration has already resulted in cuts to our federal health agencies; these cuts are on top of deep cuts already made to research. These continued cuts are stalling innovation and economic growth and discouraging the next generation of researchers and patients waiting for cures.
If Congress continues to cut core federal functions, compromising our nation’s health and science agencies (National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and National Science Foundation) and if entitlement and tax reforms undermine incentives for private-sector innovation, what does that mean for our health and economy?
