Funding for NIH

December 05, 2023

Our Goal: To support funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and biomedical research.

Why We Care 

Endocrine researchers depend on NIH grants for life-saving medical research. The Endocrine Society works to make a positive difference in the lives of patients, and advocates for increased research funding. Participate in our advocacy efforts to protect the NIH from budget cuts. 

Share Why You Advocate for NIH Funding

The Society is launching a new initiative to advocate for National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding. We are seeking volunteers to share their story about why NIH funding matters to them. A collection of these one-minute videos from Endocrine Society members will be sent to Congress to encourage efficient and sufficient appropriations. Contact [email protected] to get involved.

Recent Events 

We participated in the 2023 Rally for Medical Research Hill along with other medical societies and patient advocacy groups on Thursday, September 14, 2023. Our members met with Congressional staff and urged lawmakers to pass legislation that prioritizes medical research funding.
