A strong commitment to science funding is critical to keep America globally competitive.  To this end, I participated in the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) 2014 Hill Day to advocate for increased NIH and NSF funding.  Along with Robert Palazzo (Dean, Arts and Sciences, University of Alabama at Birmingham) and Kyle Killeen (Graduate Student, Georgetown), I met with the offices of 10 Senators and Representatives, and with Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) personally.  The meetings were overwhelmingly positive, and communicated a clear appreciation of the importance of science funding to American prosperity.
