We are encouraged by President Biden's emphasis on truth, unity, and service during his inaugural address as the 46th president of the United States. Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, addressing systemic racism, protecting national security, and advancing economic interests require the use of science and technology to inform evidence-based and equitable policy options. The scientific community welcomes opportunities to assist the Biden administration and members of Congress as they work to address the multitude of overlapping challenges facing our country. We stand ready and willing to help write the next great chapter in the American story.
