Dear Colleague:

We want to draw your attention to an invitation you should have already received from the Coalition for the Life Sciences (CLS). On
Thursday, June 20, from 5:00 pm – 7:00pm, CLS cordially invites you to attend
The Life Science Fair and Reception in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2043, 2044, and 2045.

The event will showcase how the federal investment in medical research through the National Institutes of Health leads to tomorrow’s cures. Scientists from across the country will showcase the advances they’ve made to improve health for all Americans and
attendees will have the opportunity to experience cutting-edge science through hands-on experiments.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the world’s leading supporter of fundamental discovery that extends healthy lives and reduces the burden of illness. Thanks to the Congressional investment, NIH-supported research has met some of our nation’s biggest
health challenges.

The organizations who will be on hand to showcase their research include: Association of American Medical Colleges, American Association of Immunologists, American Physiological Society, Association of Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, American Society
for Cell Biology, American Association for Cancer Research, Department of Embryology at Carnegie Science, the Jackson Laboratories, the University of California, San Francisco, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Society for Neuroscience, Society for Toxicology,
University of Chicago, Weill Cornell Medical School, and Yale.

We hope you will join the Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus for this informative event in celebration of the Life Sciences. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. This is a widely attended event. Please RSVP to Lynn Marquis at

The Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus provides a forum where Members and staff can interact directly with preeminent researchers responsible for important scientific discoveries. Many of the stunning advances, made possible by NIH funding, highlighted
in these presentations have led to improved understanding of the cause, treatment, and prevention of human disease.

If you would like to join the Biomedical Research Caucus, please contact Mia Mazer ( in Congresswoman Speier’s office or Drew Hatter (
