Senate health committee passes Next Generation Researchers Act
February 12, 2016

The Senate health committee passed the Next Generation Researchers Act (S. 2014) with bipartisan support on Tuesday, which aims to increase opportunities for young researchers and attract them to the NIH. The full Senate will now consider the bill.

 “In order for America to out-innovate the rest of the world and create an economy built to last, we must protect and strengthen our investments in research, science and innovation. We can’t accomplish this without supporting and investing in the next generation of researchers,” Senator Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., said in a press release. “This bipartisan legislation demonstrates a commitment to our future scientists by improving their opportunities at NIH.”
