The Senator will make a 10-minute presentation, touching on the national health care debate, the role of academic medical centers in the health enterprise and the importance of NIH-sponsored basic and translational research.

Academic medical centers like UCSF are turning NIH funds into treatments and new technologies to improve care for patients, and facilitating basic research. The town hall provides an opportunity to see the intersection between what happens in Washington, DC and the issues of importance to the UCSF health sciences audience.
