Psoriasis Cure Now launches StimulateResearch.com to Ensure That Medical Research is Part of Stimulus Bill

KENSINGTON, Md., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Psoriasis Cure Now," a nonprofit patient advocacy organization, has launched a micro-Web site, www.StimulateResearch.com, to help everyday Americans interested in medical research be heard in the stimulus debate that has been dominated by powerful lobbyists and special interests.

Dollars wasted now will not cure cancer, arthritis or psoriasis tomorrow. Our Web site lets Americans concerned about curing disease make sure medical research is not neglected as the final stimulus package is hammered out in the coming week."

The House-passed stimulus bill includes a few billion for NIH (much of it to build new buildings), and the current Senate version includes $10 billion for NIH over two years. But a bipartisan group of Senators is looking to cut more than $100 billion from the current version, and the House-Senate Conference Committee is expected to make significant additional revisions, meaning the fate of medical research is highly uncertain. For the last five years, NIH funding has been stagnant, with thousands of well-designed and 'shovel ready' grant requests by scientists from all 50 states being held up by
