Welcoming Three Members of Congress to NCI Frederick

Posted on by

It was a pleasure to welcome Congressional dignitaries from Maryland to NIH’s National Cancer Institute (NCI) at Frederick, MD. They took part in a roundtable discussion highlighting research at NCI Frederick in support of the Cancer Moonshot initiative. Afterwards, they visited a lab to see patient-derived models of cancer under a microscope. In this photo from the July 22 visit, I have my hand raised and standing to my left are (l-r): Senator Chris Van Hollen, Congressman David Trone, and Senator Ben Cardin. To my right is Doug Lowy, Acting NCI director. Doug and Xavier Becerra, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, also greeted these Congressional leaders and helped to direct the roundtable discussion. Credit: NIH

On May 11, I was pleased to appear before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies to discuss NIH’s budget request for Fiscal Year 2023. Joining me (left to right) were leaders of several NIH institutes: Nora Volkow, National Institute on Drug Abuse; Tony Fauci, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Diana Bianchi, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development; Doug Lowy, National Cancer Institute; and Gary Gibbons, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
