Research America hosted its annual Advocacy Awards this week, which included honoring Dr. Harold Varmus with its Legacy Award.
Dr. Harold Varmus received the Legacy award for his lifetime commitment to advancing research. In the 20 years we have hosted advocacy awards evenings, this is only the 4th time we have bestowed the Legacy Award. I hope you will take a moment to consider the timely challenge Dr. Varmus delivered to us all via his acceptance remarks, in which he refers to science as representing the best of what we have been and must continue to be as a nation.
Dr. Varmus made an amazing speech during his acceptance of the award promoting science and research in America. Can Varmus run for President? He actually knows what makes America great!
