Contact Your Members of Congress: Protect Biomedical Research
Did you know that if sequestration goes into effect, every state that receives biomedical research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) stands to lose millions of dollars? United for Medical Research has created a map that details how much NIH funding each state stands to lose. We encourage you to find out the impact on your state by clicking here. These figures are important not only because of the devastating impact on local economies, but also the harmful effect it will have on research to find better treatments and a cure for Parkinson's and other diseases.
If Congress fails to act and sequestration goes into effect, the NIH faces up to an 8% budget cut. We need you to tell Congress that the health of our nation cannot bear the burden of these across-the-board cuts!
