Congratulations to GSA’s Newest Officers

By Executive Director and CEO James Appleby, BSPharm, MPH

I’m pleased to share the results of the spring 2017 GSA elections. The Society is fortunate to have a group of talented members stepping into these leadership responsibilities. I am always impressed by how willing GSA members are to stand for election. These individuals are highly-accomplished, long-time members who are fully engaged in their professional responsibilities, as well as highly-motivated junior scholars involved with ESPO. All candidates know that, if elected, they will be called upon to devote many hours to advancing GSA. And all are willing to do so.

Science is the Driving Force That Improves Lives — Fully Fund It!

By Executive Director and CEO James Appleby, BSPharm, MPH

While international news has dominated the headlines this week, we all need to keep our attention focused on the proposed cuts to National Institues of Health funding included in the FY 2018 budget template released by the U.S. presidential administration. The new budget takes effect October 1. If the draconian 18 percent cut proposed for the NIH budget should survive the budget development process, the negative impact on science would be unprecedented and difficult to fully appreciate. In current dollar terms, the template calls for a $5.8 billion cut to NIH’s current $31.7 billion budget.
