Sign-on Letter in Support of RISE Act

Dear Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, and Leader McCarthy:

"The bipartisan, bicameral RISE Act would provide $25 billion in emergency relief--$10 billion of which would support NIH-funded research--to continue federally funded research that has been stalled, delayed, or even stopped as a result of the pandemic. The long-term consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on the country’s biomedical research enterprise are becoming clear: funds are being diverted to support COVID-related research to the detriment of research on conditions within the missions of NIH’s 27 institutes and centers; the new COVID-related expenses incurred to run research are reducing the buying power of existing grants; and we are in danger of losing a generation of investigators who are particularly vulnerable to career disruptions."
