    Collins statement on Animal research

    In an interview this week with The Washington Examiner, NIH Director Francis Collins reaffirmed the importance of animal models in NIH-funded research. In the interview which covered a number of topics, Collins remarks were in response to PETA’s support for cuts to the NIH budget, specifically funds involving animal research. Collins stated: “I think NIH is very focused on making sure that animal studies are done in the most ethical way possible, but also very convinced there are things we can learn from animal studies that will help people with terrible diseases that we otherwise can’t quite learn.”

  3. Science reports a potential change in how NIH defines a clinical trial. If enacted, The policy change could include a wide range of basic sensory and cognitive studies that use human subjects. The change would impose new requirements on these studies including publishing them on the public database clinicaltrials.gov NIH has been contemplating this policy change for a while but only recently announced that it may implement it as early as 2018. This proposed change has set off a furor among affected investigators and professional societies, stating this would require a “massive amount of dysfunction and paperwork,” according to one researcher. NIH officials state “they simply want to ensure that all clinical trials - including those testing drugs, medical devices and behavioral interventions meet recently bolstered standards for rigor and transparency.” What do you think?
  4. Over the weekend, it appeared that the leadership of the House and the Senate have reached an agreement on a bill to keep the government open for the remainder of FY 2017. The bill includes a two billion dollar increase for the NIH budget, as well as increases in funding for the Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration among other measures. The bill has bipartisan support and avoids a costly government shutdown. If you’re interested, the full text can be found here.
