President Obama’s 2012 Budget Proposal for the NIH

President Obama’s 2012 budget proposal calls for increased funding for the NIH and four other agencies involved in biotechnology. NIH would see the smallest increase of about 2.4%, or $745 million, from the last budget approved for the institute. In FY 2010, NIH received $31.24 billion, while the 2012 proposal calls for almost $31.98 billion. Congress has yet to approve a budget for the current fiscal year, which ends September 30. What do you think about NIH's potential budget for 2012?
