Dear Colleague:

 

The opioid epidemic has cost the U.S. more than a trillion dollars since 2001, and may exceed another $500 billion over the next three years. Please join the Research & Development Caucus and the Addiction, Treatment, and Recovery Caucus for an important
discussion about how biomedical engineers are working to solve this problem through research and development supported by federal science agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

 

At this event, meet bioengineers who are breaking barriers in the fight against the opioid epidemic through two new approaches:

  • pain management without pills  
  • reengineering opioids to be less addictive
