Slides from Dr. Hodes’ February 25 Meeting with FONIA

Following the meeting with Dr. Hodes, the members of the Friends of NIA who were present, decided to support the following request for NIA in Fiscal Year 2012:

Support the President’s 2012 request for NIH as a floor and the Ad Hoc Group for Medical¬†Research recommendation($35 billion) as a ceiling. Within the requested increase for NIH, the Friends of NIA ask that NIA receive $1.4 billion in FY 2012–a recommendation echoed by the Leadership Conference on Aging, reflecting the Institute’s needs and current scientific research¬†opportunities.
