Life Science Washington President & CEO Leslie Alexandre Statement on Proposed Cuts to National Institutes of Health


March 16, 2017


“Washington state is consistently one of the largest recipients of NIH funding in the country, and these funds have fueled the growth of our region’s life science industry.  A 20% cut in the NIH budget would be a devastating blow not only to our region’s life science sector, but far more importantly, to patients who are waiting for treatments based on this research.  Life Science Washington strongly opposes these draconian and senseless cuts that would essentially shut off the faucet to the discoveries that fuel the innovations on which our industry is based.”
