    An article today on Politico that some might find interesting:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2015/07/national-institutes-of-health-funding-119696.html?hp=c3_3

    Some excerpts:

    "After a dozen years of flat funding, the National Institutes of Health has become a top target on Capitol Hill — not for less money but more, potentially billions more by 2020."

    "The president’s budget requested an additional $1 billion for NIH, while both House and Senate appropriations subcommittees are pushing more, from $1.1 billion in the House to $2 billion in the Senate. The Senate’s effort would push the institutes’ funding to nearly $32.2 billion — though, in adjusted dollars, that would still be at least $3.6 billion below the level of a dozen years ago."

    "The 21st Century Cures legislation, now targeted for a House floor vote in July, would give NIH a separate $8.75 billion over five years — though even that extra resource won’t solve all of the catch-up needs, according to Collins."
