AAAS Applauds Nomination of Dr. Monica Bertagnolli as NIH Director

We strongly support the nomination of Dr. Monica Bertagnolli as the next director of the National Institutes of Health. As an accomplished physician-scientist, Dr. Bertagnolli has the credentials and personal experience to bring new vision at a critical juncture for NIH to define its role in the evolving and expanding biomedical innovation ecosystem. Her rare combination of clinical and data science research expertise together with the lived experience of her journey as a patient will bring a vital perspective to NIH. That experience will be invaluable as NIH enhances its fundamental science and technology discovery mission while pursuing integrated health- and disease-focused translational investigations. Simply put, Dr. Bertagnolli is the director NIH needs now.
