Update: Lung Cancer Research Funding Increase Passes House

 

WASHINGTON, DC [June 20, 2014]—Today, Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) announced that $10.5 million additional research funding for lung cancer has been passed by the House of Representatives as part of the Department of Defense funding bill for the coming fiscal year (FY2015).

The FY 2015 DOD appropriations bill still needs to be voted on by the Senate, but we are confident the bill will be passed in full.

The additional funding would bring the total to $89.5 million secured through DOD’s Congressional Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP).
