Antigone Barton, senior writer and editor of “Science Speaks,” discusses remarks made by NIH Director Francis Collins and Sen. William Cassidy (R-La.) at an Appropriations Labor-HHS subcommittee hearing on NIH funding. Cassidy used “his question time to repeatedly suggest cutting funding for [HIV] research” in order to shift funding to other diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Barton writes (10/7).
