NIH Saves Lives: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Calls On Congress To Restore Full NIH Funding
Date:5/15/2013

WASHINGTON, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, one of the nation's top cancer research and prevention centers and pioneer of bone marrow and stem cell transplantation, today called on Congress to support restoring full funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which supports pioneering research that saves lives. Funding was recently cut due to sequestration.

The U.S. Senate Subcommittee of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education today held a hearing for fiscal year 2014 budget request for NIH, during which Dr. Francis Collins , director of the National Institutes of Health, emphasized the importance of restoring funding to pre-sequestration levels in order to support medical research that has and will continue to lead to better medical care as well as stimulate the economy.

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), chair of the Senate Budget committee, reiterated her support to fully replace sequestration through the federal budget process with a mix of revenue and spending cuts that won't hurt crucial programs like cancer research.

"Across the board cuts to critical programs like cancer research are terrible for our country and our economy, and today's hearing reinforces the need for a balanced approach to replace sequestration," Murray said. "I've seen firsthand the positive and lasting impact that NIH funds have had in Washington state for patients with cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer's. These investments save lives, create jobs, and drive innovation, and NIH funding is crucial to making new breakthroughs."

Larry Corey , M.D., president and director of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, welcomed the hearing, saying, "Today's hearing is another step toward restoring full funding for NIH. Congress must act
