FASEB’s annual report provides an analysis of our performance and sheds light on our activities and vision.
2017 Annual Report
Looking back, 2017 was a challenging year for FASEB, for science, and for the nation.
Yet it also was a year of successes for FASEB and the biological and biomedical sciences. The bioscience community championed significant funding increases in the fiscal year (FY) 2017 budget for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and it successfully turned back proposed cuts to the NIH FY 2018 budget. Harmful legislative proposals on tuition tax wavers and facilities and administrative charges were blocked.
Our Federation can claim some credit for these victories, thanks to advocacy by our outstanding public affairs team, our board members, and our member societies. In March 2017 our Capitol Hill Day was the largest ever, and our e-Action Alerts to Congress, which rallied scientists and researchers across the country, grew in number and impact.
