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

quickly to fully replace sequestration to restore funding from these cuts.  The impacts of sequestration are real: measurable in lost jobs, lost discoveries, lost years of scientific progress and most importantly, lost lives. The strength of our nation's global research leadership is being undermined by the sequestration of medical research funding."

Murray recently toured Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and held a roundtable with researchers, patient advocates and former patients about funding for NIH. Stories of survival were shared by patients who received medical treatment that would not exist had NIH not funded the necessary research. During the roundtable, researchers from Fred Hutch, University of Washington and Seattle Children's Research Institute also made it clear that the funding cuts to NIH threaten to derail a generation of young scientists on the verge of new discoveries.

 "NIH has played a central role in our major discoveries at Fred Hutch, including bone marrow transplantation, immunotherapy, radiolabeled antibodies, and the Women's Health Initiative's pivotal progress against breast cancer," Corey said. "All are high-impact discoveries that continue to save lives, discoveries that never would have happened without NIH funding."

Funding for NIH has been flat for the past decade, with the NIH budget now about 20 percent lower than it was in 2003. Sequestration reduced the NIH budget even further, by more than 5 percent. These cuts threaten the research economy and patients.

If the sequester funding levels stay in place, across the country, 20,000 high-skilled workers and researchers could lose their jobs, according to estimates. In Washington state, which is a leading recipient of NIH grants, sequestration
