Today, the United States is only one decade removed from what was then
a forecast of difficult meager times for the national investment in medical
and scientific research. In 1995, the US House of Representatives budget resolution
called for a cut in funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of
5% for fiscal year (FY) 1996 and a freeze on NIH funding through FY 2000.1 However, the NIH received an increase of almost 6%
for FY 1996, followed by 7% increases in the following 2 years2 when
the economy was not yet strong. Those years of increases were followed by
the remarkable feat of doubling the NIH budget over 5 years—FYs 1999-2003.3(p83) Bad news can be turned into good news,
bad numbers into better, even pacesetting ones.
