Email This Entry

Posted by Zack Lynch

I've organized NIO's fourth annual Public Policy Tour of Washington, DC tomorrow with the help of the K&L Gates team. The one-day event will focus on high-level meetings on Capitol Hill. Meetings are scheduled with key congressmen and their staffers at their offices. We have over a dozen executives flying in who will introduce NIO and present our key proposals, including the National Neurotechnology Initiative (NNTI) and for Congressional hearings on the state of federal neuroscience research and development. Meetings set up with Lynch (D-MA), Space (D-OH), Kennedy (D-RI), Whitfield (R-KY), Schakowsky (D-IL), Sutton (D-OH), Jordan (R-OH),Rogers (R-MI), Tierney (D-MA), Pallone (D-NJ), Dingell (D-MI), Eshoo (D-CA), Capps (D-CA), Shadegg (R-AZ), Cummings (D-MD) and several more.
