Sara Nayeem joins a panel at The Atlantic Festival “The Global Race for Medical Breakthroughs” from 5-6:30pm on Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Washington, D.C. The event will be live-streamed.
Panel description: The United States has long pioneered biomedical research, which has led to breakthroughs in life-saving treatments and medicines. But other global powers are investing more heavily in R&D. What is the state of federal funding and investment in science and medicine? How are new global competitors challenging the U.S.? And is the United States at risk of losing its status as the biomedical leader of the world?
