    AAMC-Supported Senate Letter Calls for Strong Commitment to NIH Funding

    A bipartisan group of nearly 60 lawmakers submitted to the Senate Appropriations Committee a May 16 letter requesting appropriators maintain a strong commitment to funding (PDF) for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in fiscal year (FY) 2025. Led by Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), the letter noted that “sustained NIH funding allows scientists to do what they do best — discover tomorrow’s therapies and cures.” The Senate letter follows a similar effort in the House [refer to Washington Highlights, May 3], which 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.
