House Appropriations Subcommittee Action on NIH Budget
July 16, 2010
"We are grateful to Chairman Obey and the Subcommittee for the appropriation of the President’s FY ’11 Budget Request for NIH. Given the very difficult budgetary challenges the Subcommittee is facing, this affirmation of continuing bipartisan support for biomedical research is particularly significant. This investment will enable the United States to maintain its global leadership in medical science, for the health of ourselves, our families, our country, and the world."
"The Subcommittee bill also appropriates funding for the highly innovative Cures Acceleration Network, a flexible program that will allow NIH to pursue the many therapeutic targets produced by today’s scientific advances for tomorrow’s therapies and cures."
