Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus

2013 Briefing Series


The Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus has lined up eight speakers for their 2013 Briefing Series beginning on Wednesday, April 10, 2013.  The Caucus is a bipartisan, bicameral group of legislators from the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. The series, which takes place in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, DC, provides legislators and their aides the opportunity to learn more about potential and actual advances in health care made by the federal government’s investment in basic biomedical research. If you are in DC on any of the dates you are welcome to attend. No RSVP required.
