Think about the following questions:

  • Do you agree or disagree with the article?
  • Is a disease that is genetically-based of more value to study than one that is behaviorally-based? (eg., cancer, alcoholism and substance abuse)
  • Should we spend more money for treatment or prevention? If both, then what proportions of funds should be allocated for each?
  • In what form can “prevention” be delivered? public education? vaccines/medications? both?
  • What diseases/conditions/addictions receive priority? Why?
  • How is a research proposal evaluated to determine if it deserves the allocation of funds?
  • How is research funded via federal grants? via private grants?

Your group presentation should include the following sections:

  • History of medical research funding
  • Federal Grants
  • Private Grants
  • Diseases and conditions that have been well-funded
  • Diseases and conditions that have been inadequately-funded
  • Treatment vs. prevention
  • Personal opinions of group members
  • Bibliography
