After its first year of work, the U.S. National Security Commission on Emerging Biotechnology is pleased to publicly share its first report.
Throughout 2024, the Commission will work to advance the early ideas presented in this report, culminating in a comprehensive report to Congress in December 2024.
Biotechnology has the potential to bolster economic development in every community. If we capitalize on this unique opportunity, we can make this century the age of biology. A thriving biotechnology industry will enhance U.S. national security, strengthen and diversify the U.S. economy, and bolster a growing workforce. The Commission’s recommendations, when implemented, will ensure that the United States continues to lead the world in biotechnology development and deployment.
