Webinar: The 113th Congress and Medical Research Funding: A Perfect Storm Approaching?

This is no garden-variety budget year in Washington – a tsunami of budget and fiscal issues threaten federal science programs. While Congress has pushed the date of the “sequester” off until the beginning of March, delaying the prospect of automatic 8.2 percent cuts in the budgets of NIH, FDA, and other agencies, it is not entirely off the table. Current funding for these programs expires in March, the fiscal year 2014 budgets are being drafted, and there will likely be a fight over the debt ceiling.  This Webinar will tell you what you need to know about what could happen on Capitol Hill, when, and who the important players are, including some new faces.

Speakers include:

  • Ceci Connolly, Managing Director, Health Research Institute, PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • Sudip S. Parikh, Ph.D., Vice President and Director, Center for Analytics & Public Health, Battelle
  • Carrie D. Wolinetz, Ph.D., Associate Vice President for Federal Relations, Association of American Universities
  • Moderator: Margaret Anderson, Executive Director, FasterCures
