US Senator Tom Harkin (D – Iowa) plans to introduce the Accelerating Biomedical Research Act to restore lost NIH funding

New York: According to Genomeweb Daily News, US Senator Tom Harkin (D – Iowa) plans to introduce new legislation later this month called the Accelerating Biomedical Research Act in an effort to let NIH restore some of the funding it has lost in recent years due to flat budgets and sequestration, Jennifer Zeitzer, director of legislative relations at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, told GenomeWeb Daily News this week.

The proposal seeks to increase the NIH budget by as much as 10 percent in 2015 and 2016, and five percent every year for five more years afterward.
