“Falling out of Love with Science”
Milan Yager is a long-time Washington, D.C. lobbyist and association executive who is currently the executive director of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
Mr. Yager’s presentation will highlight innovations and achievements made possible from past federal investments in basic research such as the internet, cell phones, vaccines and mapping the human genome. How did Congress make spending decisions to permit federal R&D spending to be flat for more than a decade? Why isn’t the public concerned about declining investments for medical research?
Learn how engineers and scientists can successfully discuss their research with a member of Congress and make a winning case for federal funding for medical and biological research. Arming yourself with strategies that support the case for innovation can provide the key to changing the future landscape of new biomedical materials, products or procedures.
Reception to follow in the Whitaker Hall Atrium (Danforth Campus).
