NIH facing flat budget in FY 2013
March 2012

NEW YORK—In a budget plan for fiscal year 2013, President Barack Obama has requested $30.7 billion in funding for the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), the same amount the NIH received this fiscal year. In addition, $4.5 billion was listed for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, up from $3.8 billion in 2012, $312 million on behalf of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute for comparative effectiveness research and $1 billion for medical and prosthetic research at the Department of Veteran Affairs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would face a nearly 12 percent cut, down to $5.1 billion from $5.7 billion. Administration noted the budget would aid the NIH in the continued implementation of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, which garnered $577 million for fiscal year 2012.
