The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the world’s premier medical research institution, and our best hope for curing, diagnosing or treating diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s. NIH-supported researchers use medical imaging to find new and better ways of detecting and treating many different types of diseases and conditions. Unfortunately, the upcoming sequestration cuts would have a devastating impact on scientific research and innovation by resulting in approximately 2,300 fewer NIH grants.
