    Frances Collins announced that research funding would be raised to $15 million for 2017, but if you go onto the NIH's site (https://report.nih.gov/categorical_spending.aspx) it still shows the total funding in 2017 to be $8 million, for some reason. Maybe he announced that, but then they didn't end up funding that much research for some reason? (or maybe it hasn't been updated) Anyway, I still appreciate the commitment to increasing ME funding to at least about one twentieth of the level of other conditions (if you account for numbers and severity)
