May 11, 2005 – ASM Sends Thank You Letter to Chairman Wolf

Congressman Frank Wolf
Chair, Science, State, Justice, and Commerce Subcommittee
Appropriations Committee
H-309, The Capitol
US House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515-6017

Dear Chairman Wolf:

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM), the largest single life science Society with 43,000 members, would like to thank you for your letter to President Bush urging the tripling of the nation’s innovation budget, for federal basic research and development, over the next decade.

Fundamental research at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the biosciences has laid the foundation for exploring human, plant and microbial genomes, and now offers new possibilities for understanding the living world from molecules to organisms to ecosystems, providing discoveries applicable to meeting national health, environmental, agricultural, and energy needs.

The ASM appreciates your action in sending this letter to the President. We look forward to working with you and your staff in the future to realize this investment in the nation’s federal basic research and development programs.

Sincerely,

James M. Tiedje, Ph.D., President, ASM
