As a member of the Committee on Science and Technology and former Chair of the Energy Subcommittee, Rep. Biggert has worked to strengthen Americas scientific facilities, improve research in the basic physical sciences, and has championed funding for the Department of Energys Office of Science. She also has been a tireless advocate for increasing federal support for the training of math and science teachers. Our national labs are doing critical research in areas like biotechnology, nanotechnology, material and chemical sciences, and supercomputing, said Biggert. Their work is critical to American competitiveness over the next century. Thats why we must stop the brain drain and put America back in the lead when it comes to research and development.

We thank Reps. Holt and Biggert for their exemplary leadership. It is clear that they share our passion for science and our belief that sustained, strong federal funding for science and technology research and education is essential to our future as a nation, Lefevre said.

The SET Working Group speakers each emphasized the critical need for Congress and the country to rally to ensure that downward trends in science funding stop now. Federally-supported research drives innovation, supports the economy, improves our quality of life and makes America competitive globally. Yet, key science agencies continue to be underfunded including NASA, the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, NIH and the Department of Energys Office of Science.

"Decreased emphasis on federal funding of biomedical research not only affects the scientific researchers of today but the next generation of scientists and, ultimately, the patients of tomorrow," said Danielle Evers, a member of the Society for Neuroscience and a doctoral student in neuroscience at Georgetown University.
