Public Policy

Monday, April 24


Advocacy town hall sponsored by the ASBMB Public Affairs Advisory Committee
12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
McCormick Place, W184d

You've got questions, and we've got answers. This year, the Public Affairs Advisory Committee invites you to join our expert panel for a science policy town hall, where we'll have expert panelists prepared to answer your questions on the policy issues important to you. Join ASBMB public affairs director Benjamin Corb, PAAC chair Wes Sundquist, and NIH Director of External Research Mike Lauer as they discuss what impact President Trump and the new Congress will have on the biomedical research enterprise. Mr. Corb will provide highlights and perspectives as the ASBMB voice to political leaders in Capitol Hill, in the White House, and at the federal science funding agencies. Dr. Sundquist will share what ASBMB has done in the important space of sustaining the biomedical research community, and Dr. Lauer will provide NIH perspectives on key policy issues. 

We will be taking your questions life, as well as on twitter utilizing #PolicyTownHall. We look forward to you joining us. Boxed lunches will be provided to the first 50 attendees.
