Young scientists to make the case for research funding on Capitol Hill
Date:3/14/2011

Bozeman, Mont., echoes those sentiments. "As a biomedical researcher and an end-user of government-allocated funds, I tend to underestimate the complexities of decision making behind federal spending. This opportunity will grant me a general understanding of the processes behind government budget discretion as it relates to which institutions are given funding and how the dollar amounts are established," the doctoral student at Montana State University says. Watkins is slated to meet with both of his U.S. senators.

Other 2011 Hill Day student participants will include:

  • Vineet Gupta of Chhatarpur, India, a student at the University of Louisiana-Monroe
  • Lauren Amable, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of South Alabama
  • Erika Geihe, originally of Skaneateles, N.Y., a graduate student at Stanford University
  • Eric Patridge of Burlington, Conn., a postdoctoral research at Yale University
  • Jessica Bockhorn of Bethlehem Township, N.J., a graduate student at University of Chicago
  • Kristen Kelps of Ravenswood, W.V., a graduate student at the University of Kentucky
  • Kevin Bonham, originally of Santa Cruz, Calif., a graduate student at Harvard University
  • Laura Koontz of Southport, N.C., a graduate student at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
  • Kevin Roelofs of College Park, Md., a graduate student at the University of Maryland
  • Yun Xin Lim, originally of Melaka, Malaysia, a graduate student at the Oregon Health Sciences University
  • Christa Heyward of Pine City, N.Y., a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania

The students will be accompanied by members of the public affairs committee of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, which includes:

  • Suzanne Pfeffer of Stanford University and president of ASBMB
  • Tom Baldwin of the University of California, Riverside
  • Susan Forsburg of the University of Southern California
  • Mark Rasenick of the U
