Dear Research Advocate:

We applaud portions of the omnibus bill that support the nation’s research, innovation and public health ecosystem, which works to assure our future health and economic well-being. The growth in funding for the Food and Drug Administration, fueled in part by the common-sense return of the 2013 user fees, as well as the increases for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the National Science Foundation are welcome news.

Dear Research Advocate:

Recently, progress has been made in Congress that must not be confused for victory but is momentum to be capitalized on. For instance, the bipartisanship and compromise that we’€™ve seen in Congress is the first step in a long journey that is necessary for medical and health research to flourish and which provides temporary relief from sequestration. Now is the time to carry forward.

As the year comes to an end, let’€™s revisit the top ten most popular Research!America blog posts in 2013 (based on page views) that highlighted the importance of making research for health a higher national priority. We’€™re thankful for our many outstanding guest bloggers including early career scientists, leaders of industry, academia, patient groups and scientific societies who strongly believe in the promise of scientific discovery and medical innovation to build healthier lives.
