Stambrook Invited to Serve on National Committees

Cincinnati--Peter J. Stambrook, PhD, chairman of the Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine and associate director of the Barrett Cancer Center, UC has been invited to serve as a member of the Board of Directors of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) and of its Public Affairs Executive Committee (PAEC).

FASEB is an association of 21 scientific societies representing more than 60,000 basic scientists in the biomedical sciences, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. The mission of FASEB is to enhance the ability of biomedical and life scientists to improve, through research, the health, well-being and productivity of all people. "It is an honor for me and the University of Cincinnati to participate in this organization at a level where I may be able to influence public policy relating to scientific issues," Stambrook said.

The PAEC acts on recommendations from the Scientific Policy Committee to present positions that FASEB may take on public policy as they relate to scientific and medical issues. For example, FASEB played a critical role in convincing members of the U.S. Congress of the need to double the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget within a five-year period and to increase budget allocations to other scientific agencies.
