    A bipartisan group of nearly 200 lawmakers submitted to the House Appropriations Committee a May 1 letter (PDF) calling for at least $51.3 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2025 funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Led by Reps André Carson (D-Ind.), Suzan DelBene (D-Wash.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), and Lloyd Smucker (R-Pa.), the letter noted “it is critical that the United States make forward-thinking investments that promote medical breakthroughs, prepare for future pandemics, and sustain our international leadership in biomedical research.” The recommendation aligned with the FY 2025 funding recommendation (PDF) set forth by the Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research, an advocacy coalition of nearly 400 medical research stakeholder organizations convened by the AAMC.
