FASEB Scientists Descend on Capitol Hill to Advocate for Increased Science Funding
Date:5/21/2010

inspired the creative energies of research teams across the nation.  "ARRA funding was only appropriated for a two year period, and we face a major shortfall when these funds have been spent. Returning to pre-ARRA funding levels will be a setback for scientific progress, as well as to those suffering from the burdens of disease. It is critical that we invest now to sustain the excitement in research and maximize the return on our prior investments," noted the FASEB President.

FASEB will continue its advocacy throughout the year to press Congress and the Obama Administration to achieve the goal of sustainable funding for research. "This is both an exciting and a challenging time and we look forward to working with our champions on Capitol Hill to ensure that the budget will allow us to take maximum advantage of the expanding opportunities in science," said Lively.

FASEB is composed of 23 societies with more than 90,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. FASEB enhances the ability of scientists and engineers to improve -- through their research -- the health, well-being, and productivity of all people. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
