Sequestration's Cuts to NIH Will Have Consequences for Medical Research

  • American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) report estimating the impact of sequestration on federal science budgets over the next five years. The report estimates that for NIH, sequestration would result in $11.3 billion less for research over five years.

  • The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has created message points about the impact of sequestration on NIH-funded research.

  • Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) NIH state and district fact sheets containing funding levels as well as examples of how local federally-funded research has improved health, increased innovation, strengthened the economy, and trained the next generation of scientists. FASEB updated these to reflect the estimated loss of NIH funding as a result of sequestration.

  • FASEB analysis, Sequestration Would Deal A Devastating Blow To Medical Research, projecting NIH extramural research funding reductions for the nation and for each state in 2013. In eight states, these cuts will exceed $100 million.

  • Research!America one-pager on the impact of sequestration on NIH, as well as the CDC, FDA, and NSF.

  • ScienceWorksForU.S. video campaign on the impact sequestration will have on America’s ability to discover, innovate, educate and maintain its scientific and technological leadership.
