The Ad Hoc Group for
Medical Research

A coalition in support of increased funding for the National Institutes of Health

WHO WE ARE

The Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research is a coalition of patient and voluntary health groups, medical and scientific societies, academic and research organizations, and industry that support enhancing the federal investment in the biomedical, behavioral, and population-based research conducted and supported by the NIH.

OUR RECOMMENDATION

Increased funding for the National Institutes of Health

More than 300 organizations and institutions across the NIH stakeholder community recommend an appropriation of at least $41.6 billion for the NIH in FY 2020, a $2.5 billion increase over the NIH’s program level funding in FY 2019. This funding level would allow for meaningful growth above inflation in the base budget that would expand NIH’s capacity to support promising science in all disciplines. It also would ensure that funding from the Innovation Account established in the 21st Century Cures Act would supplement the agency’s base budget, as intended, through dedicated funding for specific programs
