Washington, March 28, 2019

U.S. Rep. Susan Davis (CA-53) led a bipartisan coalition of 222 House members in urging a $41.6 billion investment in the National Institutes of Health, a $2.5 billion increase from last year.  Davis led a similar effort in 2018 that resulted in $2 billion more for medical research.

“Despite recent progress, the NIH still has not fully recovered from over a decade of underinvestment,” the members wrote. “The critical investments we make in biomedical research are our nation’s best hope in finding cures and treatments for diseases that affect millions of Americans.”
