NIBIB director Dr. Bruce Tromberg marked his sixth month on the job with a visit to Capitol Hill, where he shared his vision for biomedical imaging and bioengineering with congressional members and staff. Rep. Anna Eshoo (D) of California’s 18th congressional district and the Academy for Radiology & Biomedical Imaging Research, an organization instrumental in advocating for NIBIB’s founding and acclaiming its ongoing impact, hosted a June 4 welcome reception at the Cannon House Office Bldg. Eshoo sponsored the bill that became P.L. 106-580 and created NIBIB as an institute at NIH in 2000. More than two dozen congressional members and staff attended the event to learn about NIBIB and its research.
