Research supported by the NIH improves health, saves lives and offers hope to people affected by disease the world-over.
NIH-funded research touches every American and is an essential catalyst – improving health, training the next generation, advancing U.S. medical innovation and spurring economic and job growth – that keeps our nation at the forefront of biomedical research and discovery.
United for Medical Research (UMR) supports the NIH by advocating for robust annual increases to its budget. Such increases are essential for the NIH to meet today’s pressing public health needs and seize the incredible opportunities presented by advances in science and technology to understand, prevent, treat and cure our most challenging diseases.
We are working together – the research community, patient and health advocates and industry – to keep the NIH strong. If you’d like to learn about UMR membership, contact us.
