The Rally for Medical Research will bring together more than 150 partnering organizations and thousands of Americans across the country to call on our nation's policymakers to make lifesaving medical research funding a national priority. If you can't be in Washington for the rally, please join us here for the live webcast.
Federal funding for medical research continues to decline, threatening the future health of Americans. There is a critical need for a sustained investment in the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies that improve health, spur more progress, inspire more hope and save more lives.
