President-elect Donald Trump has nominated Representative Tom Price (R-GA) an orthopedic surgeon to serve as incoming Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Aside from having a major role in health care reform, Price will head the agency which oversees budget and policy for the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration, among other health agencies. He will have an enormous impact on the future of biomedical research and policy ranging from the Brain Initiative to stem cell research. A news article in Nature analyzes these issues.

This is worrisome to me. His record and rhetoric suggest that he is not a fan of Obamacare and the current way that Medicare works. I do not know his stance on research funding.
