Mission of the NIH as per their website:

NIH is the steward of medical and behavioral research for the Nation. Its mission is science in pursuit of fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to extend healthy life and reduce the burdens of illness and disability.

Mission of the NSF as per their website:
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare

Mission of these agencies as per BigJohn:
The real problem is that you, and others, think that it is the business of the Federal Government to provide funding. It is not!

Hmmm. If these agencies are not supposed to be funding such research then where are my tax dollars going?
