Funding crisis warning

UC Davis' director of the Women's Cardiovascular Medicine Program participated in a consortium of eight leading scientific and medical institutions around the country that warned Congress that multiple years of stagnant budgets for the National Institutes of Health has hindered scientific progress. As a result, promising research is being halted in mid-stream; young investigators are leaving careers in science; and an undermining of U.S. global leadership in biomedical research is occurring. The authors of the 21-page report, "Within Our Grasp – Or Slipping Away? Assuring a New Era of Scientific and Medical Progress," were from Harvard University, UC Davis, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Texas at Austin, Washington University in St. Louis, the University of Wisconsin Madison and Yale University. Amparo Villablanca, founder and director of UC Davis' Women's Cardiovascular Medicine Program, contributed to the section titled "Tackling Twin Epidemics of Obesity and Diabetes."
