Abstract:

The Bureau of Biomedical Sciences CPSC Review Committee was appointed to conduct an in-depth review of the activities of the Bureau of Biomedical Sciences to determine its role in fulfilling the mission of the CPSC, to review its current research programs, and to recommend a course of action for future research or any specific changes that would be beneficial to the Commission. During the course of the committees deliberations, the CPSC underwent a reorganization that in June 1977 eliminated the Bureau as a specific entity and incorporated its functions under a new directorate. The committee was advised that the reorganizational change should be considered in determining the role of Health Sciences, now part of the Directorate for Engineering and Sciences. Recommendations are made for this purpose. Author
