Science Policy and Communication Symposium

Scientific innovation drives the world forward, but the ways in which we allocate funds and promote scientific understanding in United States are intricate and ever changing. Join us for a series of events exploring how politics and funding impacts science -- from technology transfer to congressional priorities. We're looking forward to some candid discussions on the current state of science in America.

Registration is required for lunch and will be limited to the first 80 participants. Lunch will begin at 12:30 in the Mountainlair's Gold Ballroom and will consist of a catered soup and salad bar with vegetarian and gluten free options available.
