I’m Mary Woolley, President and CEO of Research!America (@ResearchAmerica), a nonprofit advocacy alliance committed to making research to improve health a higher national priority. Each electoral cycle, Research!America and partner organizations launch a national voter education initiative called “Ask Your Candidates! Is Medical Research Progress a Priority?”
(www.askyourcandidates.org) which calls on congressional candidates to share their views on government policies and support for medical innovation conducted in both the public and private sectors. So far, we have received more than 150 statements from candidates with different viewpoints on federal support for research. Sequestration, the across-the-board budget cuts enacted last year, dramatically reduced funding for federal agencies including the National Institutes of Health, jeopardizing innovative studies to find new treatments for deadly disease. Unless Congress assigns a higher priority to and allocates more funding for research, America's global leadership in science and technology will be compromised; cures and therapies will be delayed; the economic benefits of a robust innovation pipeline will go unrealized; and an entire generation of scientists will be lost.
As Election Day draws near, this is an opportunity to talk about the statements we have gathered from candidates, current threats to medical and health research funding, and for you to share questions and comments you want your congressional candidates to hear!
I'll be back at 1 pm EDT (10 am PDT, 4 pm UTC) to answer questions, AMA!
