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.”

An NSF press release notes that this funding level supports the President's goal of increasing the nation's total public and private investment in research and development to at least three percent of the gross domestic product (GDP). In addition, the 2011 budget request includes an increase of 41 percent in the Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction account.
