On Wednesday September 13th, physics professor and research enthusiast, Dr. Price traveled to Washington D.C to attend The Rally for Medical Research Capitol Hill Day. People at this rally included researchers and people who have been directly impacted by medical research itself. The purpose of this rally is to call on the country’s policymakers to make funding for the National Institute of Health and the National Science Foundation a national priority and raise awareness about the importance of continued investment in medical research. This investment in medical research ultimately leads to more progress, more hope, and more lives saved. Similarly, federal funding in this medical research has given a number of student researchers here at Emmanuel world class training opportunities that they may otherwise not have gotten without funding from either of theses institutions. Its so amazing to see some of our very own taking action!
