Ad Hoc Group
for Medical Research
FY 2016 Recommendation
The Ad Hoc Group for
Medical Research, representing patients and their
families, scientists and health care providers,
research institutions, and industry, is pleased
that President Obama recognized the medical research
conducted at and supported by the National Institutes
of Health (NIH) as a national priority in the fiscal
year (FY) 2016 budget request.
While the budget proposal represents a welcome first
step to better synchronizing NIH funding with biomedical
inflation, the Ad Hoc Group's members believe that
the ongoing and emerging health challenges confronting
the United States and the world, and the unparalleled
scientific opportunities to address these challenges
demand a funding level of at least $32 billion in
FY 2016. We look forward to working with Congress
and the Administration to achieve this goal through
the annual appropriations process.
