    Date: January 30, 2014

    ASBMR applauds President Barack Obama for his support of federal investments in research and development in his most recent State of the Union address. In it, Obama stated, “Federally funded research helped lead to the ideas and inventions behind Google and smartphones.  That’s why Congress should undo the damage done by last year’s cuts to basic research so we can unleash the next great American discovery – whether it’s vaccines that stay ahead of drug-resistant bacteria, or paper-thin material that’s stronger than steel.”  Read the full State of the Union address on the White House website.
