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.

More than 300 organizations and institutions across the NIH stakeholder community recommend $36.2 billion for NIH in FY 2018, including funds provided through the 21st Century Cures Act. This $2 billion increase to the NIH base would enable real growth over biomedical inflation as an important step to stabilizing the nation’s research capacity over the long term. Read the full recommendation and list of endorsers here.

The Ad Hoc Group published an ad in the Wall Street Journal and Politico on May 23, 2017, thanking Congress for its support of medical research and recommending continued progress in FY 2018.
