Obama says he will push for more funding for clinical diagnostic tests

President Obama has made it clear that he wants to provide more funding to scientific laboratories, including to help them develop more advanced diagnostic tests for cancer, heart disease and other conditions.

Obama spoke Tuesday at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is responsible for NIH’s work on vaccines and other health issues.

The president also announced that he is seeking additional funding to continue research into a test called Ortho Clinical Diagnostics that could help diagnose rare cancers, including leukemia and lymphoma.

“We’ve seen the power of this technology,” Obama said, referring to a small company in Kansas City, Kan., that has created a test that can detect changes in a patient’s immune system.

And, he said, “I think this could be a huge breakthrough for diagnostics in the future.

It could be the first step in developing new and more accurate diagnostic tests.”

The president, who has long pushed for greater scientific research into diagnostics, also pledged to continue funding research into the “bacterial cocktail” of bacteria that causes some cancers.

His announcement comes amid a surge of scientific advances in cancer treatments, such as the use of DNA sequencing technology to analyze the genomes of the tumor cells that have caused the disease.

Scientists also say that new diagnostic tests are improving the lives of millions of people.

With the president’s call, the NIH is now a major part of the fight against cancer, which has claimed more than 5 million lives worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

More coverage:President Obama, who took office in 2009, is seeking to expand funding for scientific research and clinical tests.

He has pledged to spend $10 billion in his first year in office to provide funding for more than 10,000 new research and development centers.

That’s more than any previous president has requested.

We’re going to get there,” he said.

President Obama also announced his plan to provide $5 billion for the NIH’s research program, which aims to develop new and better ways to treat diseases such as cancer.

In his first 100 days in office, Obama announced that the federal government will spend $100 billion to research and develop a vaccine to prevent coronavirus-related deaths.

By the end of 2020, the administration plans to invest $200 billion to expand the NIH program, according the White House.

Trump has taken a different tack, promising to slash the NIH budget by 70 percent in his second term.

He said that by 2022, the budget would shrink to $10.6 billion, down from the current $12.7 billion.

But he also has said that he will support research into new diagnostics.

Some scientists, including some of the scientists who worked on the new coronaviruses, have questioned the wisdom of such a drastic shift, and have argued that the Trump administration could provide some answers.

The National Cancer Institute said last month that the administration is taking a different approach.
