Please support RISE Act

I am writing to urge you to cosponsor and push for swift passage of the Research Investment to Spark the Economy (RISE) Act to help recover and advance the nation’s research enterprise. This bipartisan, bicameral legislation is urgently needed to authorize $25 billion in supplemental funding for federal research agencies, including $10 billion for the NIH.

The pandemic has exposed significant challenges for the nation’s research enterprise for early-career scientists, women, and underrepresented minorities. It has also disrupted important research affecting millions such as Alzheimer’s, cancer and mental illness research. The RISE Act and its supplemental funding will restore our nation’s research ecosystem and jump-start future scientific and technological discovery essential to public health and our nation’s economic success.

Please let me know if you have added your name as a cosponsor to the RISE Act.
