Nebraska Cures and Research Nebraska created the following fact sheet to highlight federal proposals for significant increases in science and research funding.

“Investment in research is the investment for our future well-being, which will impact generations to come. Investment in research has led to many life-saving discoveries, from the human genome project to the CRISPR technology and gene therapy to correct genetic diseases, and to the early detection and novel cancer treatments to save lives. Needless to say, these investments are needed to keep U.S. scientific research in the forefront and continue to lead the world in innovation and in scientific breakthroughs.” – Charles Wood, PhD, Director, Nebraska Center for Virology, Professor, School of Biological Sciences, University oof Nebraska-Lincoln
