ASH is the leader in representing the interests of scientists and clinicians working in the field of hematology on Capitol Hill and within federal agencies concerned with the study and treatment of blood-related diseases.
In July, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved a draft spending bill that would provide nearly $31 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in fiscal year (FY) 2014, an amount that would replace funding lost due to sequestration and provide a small increase over the FY 2012 NIH budget.
