U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today praised President Donald Trump’s decision to retain Dr. Francis Collins as Director of the National Institutes of Health:

“This is much welcome news for American patients, doctors, researchers, and advocates. For nearly a decade, Dr. Collins has spearheaded the bold agenda at the National Institutes of Health, but he’s spent his entire life as public servant on the cutting-edge of medical research. He worked hand-in-glove with our team from the start to get the groundbreaking 21st Century Cures Act signed into law. Dr. Collins is a friend and I’m very pleased he’s going to continue the innovative work he’s known for on behalf of the American people.”
