President Obama is seeking $755 million in cancer research funding as part of his 2017 budget. Congress has already approved $195 million in research funding in 2016, which would bring total funding to nearly $1 billion over the next two years. These funds are meant to jump-start ongoing research as part of the Administration’s “moonshot” goal of curing cancer. A task force led by Vice President Biden and including representatives from the NIH, DHHS, DoD, FDA, and other federal agencies met for the first time on Monday, Feb. 1, to discuss the initiative and begin planning.
