A Dispatch from the AIBS Congressional Visits Day

Today's episode of BioScience Talks is a second dispatch from AIBS's spring Congressional Visits Day, which is a program that gives researchers a chance to travel to Washington, DC, to meet with their Congressional representatives and advocate for science. I had the chance to talk with a number of participants about their research, their interest in policy, and their plans for the next day's Capitol Hill visits. Participants included:

Peri Lee Pipkin, University of California Botanic Garden, Claremont University
Conner Philson, University of California, Los Angeles; Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory
Valentina Alvarez, University of Hawaii at Manoa
Katherine Charton, University of Wisconsin
Lauren Orton, Sauk Valley Community College
Rebecca Kauten, Iowa Lakeside Laboratory
