You can play a critical role in advancing funding for basic and biomedical research.
Thank Congress for Advancing Research Funding
Your advocacy efforts to advance biomedical research funding have resulted in significant victories over the last three years, including the recent $3 billion increase in NIH funding.
As Congress begins their work on funding levels for FY19 it’s important to thank them for their investment in NIH and NSF, share with them how this funding is leading to knowledge and discovery specific to your research in their state or district, and ask them to continue to advance funding for FY19. Contact your members of Congress TODAY, and thank them for their support of basic science and tell them to keep scientific research a priority in FY19.
