Election of US President Joe Biden a Boon to the Focused Ultrasound Community
President Joe Biden’s longstanding commitment to fact-based policy and decision-making, science, and healthcare will help expedite the advancement of focused ultrasound for patients in the US and around the world.
The President has elevated the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) director to a cabinet-level position for the first time in history. The work of the Foundation fits within the mandate of OSTP, which in part advises the Executive Office on scientific and technological aspects of health.
In 2014, then-vice president Biden visited the 4th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound in Bethesda, Maryland; his attendance was a great inspiration to the community.
