Members make case for science on Capitol Hill

The 2011 American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology fall Hill Day hosted nine investigators who live or work in the districts of representatives from the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, which allocates funding for the National Institutes of Health. The invited researchers, along with eight members of the Public Affairs Advisory Committee, met with more than 40 congressional offices to advocate for biomedical research.
