Washington in Review

  • The Senate Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations Subcommittee has met and marked up its FY17 bill, which includes funds for the National Science Foundation (NSF). The subcommittee provided no increase for NSF, proposing $7.5 billion for FY17.
  • The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health, has launched an online platform to enable the research community and the public to submit ideas on the National Cancer Moonshot efforts. Submissions will be considered by a blue ribbon panel of scientific experts and patient advocates as they develop the scientific direction at NCI for the initiative. You can contribute your research ideas at http://1.usa.gov/1Ts7nig.
