Mission, Vision, & Values

Our Mission

The Research!America alliance advocates for science, discovery, and innovation to achieve better health for all. 

We urge Congress and the administration to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Science Foundation (NSF) at levels that keep pace with scientific opportunity. We also advocate for federal funding for a legislative and regulatory climate that stimulates growth in private sector research and development.

We embrace diversity, equity & inclusion in all we do.
We are nonpartisan.
We regard professionalism and mutual respect as the cornerstones of our workplace.
We act with integrity, transparency, creativity, and flexibility.
