"More research is needed to understand....."
"More funding is needed to explore....."
Of course it does. We all know that there is a huge demand for research studies and increasingly limited supply of funds.
For one example, at EB2011, we heard Francis Collins, NIH Director, discuss the need to fund the research of new investigators and innovative studies as he highlighted NIH's funding areas.
ASN aims to play a role in securing more research dollars and supporting the research interests of members through the new Research Foundation it has established.
The President of ASN's Research Foundation, Jim Hill, discusses the mission of the Foundation in this brief video.
Check back with ASN on more information about this new organization.
