     In a statement released to the press, FASEB applauded President Obama for the investment in medical research in his FY 2011 budget. “This is the largest proposed funding increase for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) we have seen in a President’s budget in eight years,” said Mark O. Lively, Ph.D. “It clearly indicates that research is a high priority, and we are gratified that the value of science has been affirmed. We are grateful for the leadership of NIH Director Francis Collins and Secretary Kathleen Sebelius; as strong advocates for biomedical research, they undoubtedly had a hand in shaping this budget request.” 
  • FY 2011 Budget: National Institutes of Health (NIH) The President’s FY 2011 Budget proposes $32 billion for NIH, a $1 billion (3.2 percent) increase over the FY 2010 level.
