Reaction to FY14 Omnibus Spending Bill

January 14th, 2014

The following statement may be attributed to Carrie Wolinetz, PhD, President, United for Medical Research:

“The FY14 omnibus spending bill falls short of restoring funding for lifesaving National Institutes of Health (NIH) biomedical research. The proposed package won’t adequately reverse the damage done by last year’s budget sequester and ensure the nation’s biomedical research enterprise makes continued progress in lifesaving research and development.”
