Rep. Susan Davis Calls for $40 Billion in Funding for Medical Research
Rep. Susan Davis joined 37 of her colleagues in a letter led by Rep. Juan Vargas asking President Obama to significantly increase funding for the National Institutes of Health in his FY2017 budget request.
“San Diego is a national leader in the field of medical research and NIH funding plays a key role in the breakthroughs and discoveries that are made every day,” said Rep. Davis. “Budget cuts have threatened this critical funding, affecting medical advancements and our local economy. We need to keep NIH funding at a level that ensures San Diego and the United States remain world leaders in medical research.”
San Diego is a top recipient in NIH funding and Davis has been a vocal advocate for robust funding for medical research.
