"When we are talking about space technology to map the human brain we are not talking about science fiction or a fantasy land. We are talking about technologies, which are already available and could revolutionize the healthcare industry by reducing cost and morbidity, increase efficiency while creating jobs through biotech spinoffs. Our members have done this in last 10 years with amazing results but we need more private and government partnership and investments in this area, which could save the country billions of dollars in the future," said Babak Kateb. He continues, "We have significantly advanced the introduction of new clinical trials for patients with Alzheimer's disease, and worked closely with the US military in order to rapidly find solutions for our beloved wounded warriors who are suffering from devastating neurological disorders. We also need to form a National Data Repository for Neuroscience, which could track progress and help the agencies and scientists be more efficient while eliminating duplications.The Society has been always supportive of sound bipartisan healthcare policies, which could reduce the cost of healthcare and increase the efficiency of healthcare delivery while creating jobs in the US through spinoffs. Therefore, in last 10 years, SBMT has presented numerous key policymakers with prestigious "Pioneer in Healthcare Policy Awards." Among the past recipients are former Governor Schwarzenegger (R) for his role in California Stem cell initiatives, and the honorable Senator Ted Kennedy (D) for his remarkable leadership in the healthcare policy arena. This year the Society has nominated the Honorable President Obama, the Honorable Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-chair of the Congressional Neuroscience Caucus), the Honorable Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Co-chairwoman of Congressional Neuroscience Caucus) and Congressman Jim Moran (D-the U.S. Representative for Virginia's 8th congressional district) for their significant roles in advancing neuroscience research and improving healthcare for both wounded warriors and the civilians in the US.
