Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research Recommends $44.7 BN for NIH in FY21

The Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research, which includes AAU, released a statement recommending Congress fund NIH at $44.7 billion in FY21. The group noted that the White House’s FY21 budget proposal’s 7 percent funding cut to NIH would “devastate the agency’s ability to pursue promising new science to improve and save lives.” The requested $44.7 billion would increase the base NIH budget while accounting for inflation and would help NIH take full advantage of “unprecedented scientific opportunity, renew our global leadership in science and technology, and strengthen our national security.”
