Public Affairs Announcement - White house petition

The current White House budget proposal calls for a flat NIH budget in 2013. Moreover, the number of postdocs supported by NIH-training grants is slated for a 2% decrease. Research is already heavily under duress, with NIH funding rates at a record low. Please click the web-link below to sign the White House petition to increase NIH funding in 2013! This petition provides a unique opportunity to gain the attention of our governmental leaders. If the petition receives 25,000 signatures by March 18th, the White House will review it. Currently there are over 16,000 signatures.

You will need to create a White House account. This takes about 3 minutes. After you create your account, log on and sign the petition.
