American Association for Cancer Research lauds Senator Arlen Specter
Date:2/17/2009

PHILADELPHIA Following the passage of the American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009 by Congress, the American Association for Cancer Research praised Republican Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania for his leadership in including a $10 billion investment in the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

In a continuing effort to combat disease and improve public health, the NIH last year awarded 47,000 grants totaling $20.4 billion that supported salaries, equipment and infrastructure across the country. The average NIH research grant supports seven jobs.
