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 House Appropriations Committee has approved $47.5 billion for NIH in FY23 and while in normal times this would be an appropriate increase, the role of NIH in addressing COVID and an aging population merits a stronger priority.

More must be done to maintain and expand the Congressional commitment to NIH on behalf of the American people and the institute’s position as the world’s premier medical research agency. In addition to NIH’s role in finding answers for Alzheimer’s and cancer, increased funding is needed to support early-career investigators, address health disparities research, and prioritize long-COVID research.

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