Neurosurgery Urges Congress to Increase NIH Funding
Joining the Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research and more than 360 supporting organizations, the AANS and the CNS signed a letter urging Congress to allocate $46.1 billion to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for FY 2022 — $3.2 billion more than appropriated in FY 2021. The AANS and the CNS have also endorsed Ellie’s Law (H.R. 1553). Sponsored by Rep. Yvette D. Clarke (D-N.Y.), this legislation would authorize $10 million in funding for the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to increase the knowledge and understanding of brain aneurysms, including how to manage and treat this condition effectively.
