PAN Submits Testimony in Support of NIH Funding

On March 25, 2014, PAN submitted written testimony to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies in support of increased National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding.

The testimony is included in the record of a public hearing held by the Subcommittee, which is responsible for recommending funding levels for NIH, to allow various advocacy groups and stakeholders to make their case for their respective priorities. For Fiscal Year 2015, PAN is requesting $32 billion for NIH and an increase for the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to help implement the 31 priority recommendations for Parkinson’s disease research adopted by NINDS following the Parkinson’s Planning Meeting in January.
