FASEB thanks legislators for FY2016 boost in NIH spending
On Capitol Hill last month SFG representatives joined FASEB in personally thanking Rep. Tom Cole and Sen. Roy Blunt for their leadership in ushering the $2B increase in NIH funding for FY2016. The legislators were awarded the 2016 FASEB Public Service Award. At the ceremony both promised "sustained" increases.
