Analysis of Budget Cuts Impact to Biomedical Research

Last week, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)
released an analysis of the impact sequestration had on biomedical research.  According to their analysis, in constant dollars the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget in fiscal year (FY) 2013 was $6 billion less than FY2003. Additionally, the number of competing research project grants awarded by NIH decreased by 20.3% from FY2003-FY2013. AADR will continue to partner with research community urging Congress to roll back all of the cuts administered by sequestration and increase funding for the National Institutes of Health.
