Endocrine Society Letter to NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins on Emergency Funding Allocation Priorities

May 21, 2020

To: The Honorable Francis S. Collins

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, I am writing today to request your support for critical endocrine-related research related to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. While we welcome the additional supplementary funds provided by the Congress to several institutes and centers (ICs) to support research priorities related to the current pandemic, other ICs are better prepared to advance research on COVID-19 in scientific areas within their mission. We encourage you to use the Director’s transfer authority and other mechanisms as appropriate (e.g., joint FOAs, OD funds) to ensure that needed COVID-19 research across NIH ICs can be supported without jeopardizing progress on other research priorities."
