April 17, 2017

Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (D-Rockland/Westchester), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee, today announced an $82,000 National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) grant for New York Medical College to research complications in patients with kidney disease. “By supporting research into the most challenging medical mysteries, we will save lives,” said Lowey. “These federal funds for New York Medical College are a great example of why we should be investing more money in biomedical research, not less. As Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee, I will continue fighting to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health to develop new treatments and cures that will improve health outcomes.”
