“Research funding is an investment in the future—we can’t know that every hypothesis tested is going to reveal something profound, but we do know that not investing will ensure no progress at all.”
So says glaucoma researcher Denise Inman, Ph.D., who is featured on the Research!America website as part of the scientific research non-profit’s “Reasons to Research’’ campaign for government funding.
Her comments and photo appear alongside researchers from Johns Hopkins University, the University of Pennsylvania and the Keck School of Medicine at University of Southern California. Dr. Inman is a part of the collaborative team in NEOMED’s Neurodegenerative Disease and Aging research area. Read more about her glaucoma research.
Research!America describes itself as “the nation’s largest not-for-profit public education and advocacy alliance working to make research to improve health a higher national priority. We urge Congress and the administration to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Science Foundation (NSF) at levels that keep pace with scientific opportunity. We also advocate for federal funding for global health research and a legislative and regulatory climate that stimulates growth in industry research and development.’
