Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research Requests Supplemental Appropriations for NIH

The Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research released a statement thanking the House Appropriations Committee Labor-Health and Human Services-Education subcommittee for recognizing that the NIH remains a “key national priority despite the restrictive subcommittee funding allocation imposed by the impractical pre-pandemic discretionary spending caps.” In addition to the $47 billion the subcommittee provided for NIH, the group requests additional emergency supplemental funding of at least $10 billion for dedicated research relief. This funding would “represent an important investment to advance new progress toward cures.” AAU is a member of the Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research and currently sits on the group’s steering committee.
