Action needed: US House to vote tomorrow on CR to slash research funding

The U.S. House of Representatives may vote as early as tomorrow on a Continuing Resolution (CR) that includes a swath of cuts across the federal budget including a 5+% cut for NIH. Such a cut would have devastating consequences for not only research generally and the U.S. economy, but also specifically for stem cell research.

If you care about research, we need you to contact your representative to voice your opposition to the budget cut for NIH and your support of an amendment that would remove the cut.

There are many ways to contact your representative. One simple way is by going here and it only takes a minute.

Stop the Republican Congress’ Sledge to America!
