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 $49 billion for the NIH in FY 2023, and strongly urges lawmakers to ensure that any funding for the new Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) supplement our $49 billion recommendation for NIH’s base budget, rather than supplant the essential foundational investment in the NIH. To fully harness novel research tools and partnerships against existing and looming threats, we must continue the forward momentum of meaningful investments in the NIH. Federal funding for research should be as aspirational as the improvements in patient health that we seek.
