The latest policy and advocacy updates related to the field of clinical and translational science.
In mid-March, the Biden administration kicked off the ceremonially start to the annual budget and appropriations process with the release for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 President’s Budget Request to Congress. The non-binding document serves to outline administration priorities as Congress works on corresponding spending bills. This year, the request outlines a reinvigoration of the Cancer Moonshot while calling for further funding for medical research and public heath programs (though skewing that request toward public health due to the fact that medical research continues to have strong bipartisan support on Capitol Hill). A summary of key items from the FY 204 budget request to Congress is listed below.
