FY 2015 House Appropriations Testimony

March 25, 2014

FY2015 House Appropriations Committee Public Testimony Submitted By The Endocrine Society For The Subcommittee On Labor, Health And Human Services, Education, And Related Agencies

"The Endocrine Society remains deeply concerned about the future of biomedical research in the United States without sustained support from the federal government. Flat funding in recent years, combined with the impact of sequestration, threaten the nation’s scientific enterprise and make adequate FY 2015 appropriations for the NIH increasingly important. The Society strongly supports increased federal funding for biomedical research in order to provide the additional resources needed to enable American scientists to address scientific opportunities and maintain the country’s status as the preeminent research engine. The Endocrine Society therefore asks that the NIH receive at least $32 billion in FY 2015. "
