How have research cuts affected you?
As a physician-scientist currently in the fourth year of my K08 award, I have become increasingly tuned into what has been happening to the NIH and its impact on researchers, as well as the broader impact on science in this country.
It’s not good.
Thankfully, AGA is planning a campaign to advocate that Congress recommit to more stable NIH funding. I plan to be involved. I hope you will be, too.
To get started, please take an AGA survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ResearchCuts.
In the free-response areas, share details that will illustrate to Congress the real-world impacts of budget cuts to biomedical research. AGA won’t share your story without your permission.
We are reaching out to all AGA members in research, but please feel free to forward it along to your colleagues. The more GI researchers who answer the survey, the better!
On behalf of the AGA Public Affairs and Advocacy Committee and the Research Policy Committee, thanks for your time.
