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

Dollars wasted now will not cure cancer, arthritis or psoriasis tomorrow.

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
