Federally Funded Cancer Research: Coordination and Innovation, Hearing Before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fifteenth Congress, First Session, March 29, 2017   [open pdf - 1MB]

This is the March 29, 2017 hearing on "Federally Funded Cancer Research: Coordination and Innovation" held before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the opening statement of Jason Chaffetz: "So part of-the heart of what we want to hear is, how much does the money make the difference? What could we do if we did have the resources? And with the resources we are throwing at it, which is a handful, billions-again, I don't want to treat it lightly-but compared to the $4 trillion we will spend this year, we are going to spend a couple billion fighting what is going to ultimately kill 1,500 people a day, that equation to me just doesn't make sense. We want to hear not only what could happen if there was more funding, what is happening with the funding that is going on, and what are some of the exciting developments?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Tammi Carr, Mary Beckerle, Elizabeth Jaffee, and Tyler Jacks.
