The National Research Council will host a public briefing for its new report, A New Biology for the 21st Century. The briefing will be held on 17 September 2009 at 10:00 AM at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, DC. The report’s authoring committee co-chair Phillip Sharp of MIT, and committee member Keith Yamamoto of the University of California at San Francisco, will share the report’s findings about the potential of biology to contribute practical solutions to major challenges confronting the world. The report is also expected to include recommendations for a new biology initiative to support an interdisciplinary, problem-focused approach to biological research.

If you are interested in attending this event, please contact Amanda Cline at acline@nas.edu to register (guests will also be able to register at the door).
