An Annual Plan that Celebrates the National Cancer Act
With special authorities granted in the National Cancer Act of 1971, NCI has been submitting an annual budget proposal directly to the President and Congress for 50 years. In early September, NCI released the Annual Plan & Budget Proposal for Fiscal Year 2023. In this edition of the NCI Bottom Line blog, Dr. Michelle Bennett discusses priorities from the annual plan that are especially relevant to current and future NCI-funded researchers, including NCI’s commitment to investigator-initiated research and raising the R01 payline to fund more highly meritorious research.
