Biomedical Research is at a Critical Juncture

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Dr. Francis Collins, director of the NIH, authored an op-ed in last Wednesday’s issue of the Washington Post.  He wrote, “Biomedical research is at a critical juncture — a moment of exceptional opportunities that demand exceptional attention if their promise is to be fully realized.”  Dr. Collins noted, “The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is responsible for turning scientific discoveries into better health, but a combination of sequestration-mandated spending cuts and budgets that have not kept pace with biomedical research inflation over the past 10 years has weakened NIH’s ability to carry out its mission.”  He concluded, “…for the millions of sick people awaiting treatments and cures, the investment in NIH’s mission is priceless. If an investment in hope is not worth supporting, I don’t know what is.”  http://tinyurl.com/mm6kpe7
