The Health and Life Sciences Team is advancing a portfolio that demonstrates the critical importance of science and technology in improving human health, and the role of life sciences in addressing the highest priorities of the Biden-Harris Administration. Building on lessons learned from the historic COVID-19 pandemic and unprecedented opportunities in the life sciences, the Health and Life Sciences Team’s priority efforts include: bio-preparedness, including pandemic preparedness, antimicrobial resistance, and biosecurity, health systems and health equity, accelerating biomedical innovation to patients, and innovation across the life sciences enterprise, including agriculture, biotechnology, and biomanufacturing. The team’s approach includes seeking systemic science and technology policy opportunities that crosscut health and life sciences goals.
The team is led by Dr. Carrie Wolinetz, OSTP’s Deputy Director for Health and Life Sciences.
