April 11, 2013
The 2013 AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill will take
place April 17, 2013, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The program will begin in the Rayburn
House Office Building Gold Room (#2168). Federal investments in biomedical
research continue to be targeted for reduction despite the well demonstrated
contribution to U.S. economic growth and individual health. During FY11, NIH
funded just 18% of proposals received—an all-time low. Despite this fact, $2.5
billion is scheduled to be removed from the NIH budget this fiscal year. The
budget for NIH and other Federal research agencies are projected to worsen over
the next decade unless Congress acts to change the course.
