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

Nearly 400 organizations and institutions across the NIH stakeholder community recommend an appropriation of $46.1 billion for the NIH in FY 2022, a $3.2 billion increase over the NIH’s program level funding in FY 2021. This funding level would allow meaningful growth of 5% in the NIH’s base budget to keep pace with the biomedical research and development price index (BRDPI). It also would support the career trajectories of students and early-career investigators, provide hope for patients and their families, and fully harness novel research tools and partnerships against existing and future health threats.
