$15 million for MS Research on the line

The U.S. Department of Defense and its ridiculously humongous budget may actually be put to some good :)

"Now is the time to pursue MS research in the CDMRP for fiscal year 2009. This program is funded annually through the Department of Defense (DoD) appropriations bill. Last year, your efforts influenced Congress to include MS and for the first time it became one of the areas eligible to compete for research funds through this program. We can build on this success and secure specific funding for MS research."

The link provides a scripted email letter that will be sent to your state Senators on your behalf and it is super easy to fill out. Do eeeet now!

The DOD funds a ton of medical research. The Army has a very reputable research center that is well funded.

No offense meant, gwa. Just when I see the money spent on Iraq it can get me pretty :evil:

Actually I saw a kind of cool article today about regenerative medicine and its ties to the military.
