Report: NIH Sequester Cuts Will Harm Life Sciences Jobs, Economy

Washington, DC, February 7, 2013The Hill has reported that advocates are warning that the budget sequestration will curtail $3 billion in economic activity if cuts hit the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on March 1.

Advocacy coalition United for Medical Research (UMR) released new figures that show the NIH supported more than 402,000 jobs and about $58 billion in economic output in 2012.

The NIH budget will be cut by 5.1 percent unless lawmakers act in the next month.  UMR warned that if sequestration takes effect, approximately 20,500 life science jobs would be lost along with $3 billion in economic activity.

In a statement, UMR President Carrie Wolinetz said, “We cannot allow budget cuts, such as those looming from the sequester, to undermine the biomedical research enterprise, causing the loss of jobs and prosperity, as well as setting us back at a time when we are on the cusp of exciting new advances.”
