Support NIH

I am writing to ask for your support of the National Institutes of Health and increasing funding for this critical research agency to at least $49 billion for FY23. The proposal under discussion by Congress of a mere 0.6 percent increase over current year funding is disappointing considering the importance of biomedical research to addressing current and expanding pandemic threats, an aging population, and the role of medical innovation in bolstering America’s global competitiveness.

I support the Administration’s request for the new Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) and additional COVID supplemental funding. However, these priorities should be funded separately and not diminish needed funding for existing and new biomedical research.

Please let me know if you support fully funding NIH in FY23 at a minimum of $49 billion.
