Biomedical research at least in the House of Representative proposal faces severe cutbacks as do many other programs that are not related to defense, social security, or Medicare. It is during times like this that the mission of the AFMR is even more important. The mission of AFMR is to promote understanding of recent advances in biomedical science for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease; to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information among physicians and other investigators who are concerned with the treatment.
