The new website includes compelling public opinion poll data, fact sheets, state-by-state data on research funding and economic impact, testimony and letters submitted to Congress and the administration, and other informative materials on public and private sector research. 

“Our dynamic, mobile-friendly website gives policymakers, media, scientists and advocates resources on the economic and health benefits of medical innovation from bench to bedside,” said Mary Woolley, President and CEO, Research!America. “As advocates, we work tirelessly to ensure accurate, timely information is available for those who are committed to making research for health a higher national priority.”

The website provides easy access to reports, fact sheets, current news, polling data and upcoming events. The revamped advocacy and action section includes in-depth information on public and private sector research such as statistics on R&D spending in the U.S., case studies and testimonials of scientists and patients.
