Due December 15th, 2013 - From the creation of flu vaccines and new cancer therapies to enhancing agriculture and developing biofuels, bioscience breakthroughs are transforming our world and our health at a rapid pace. However, many Americans are not aware of the critical role the US federal government plays in supporting biological research and discovery.
 
The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is looking for you to create an exciting, yet informative, video to let Americans know how science is funded!

Your video should be between 1-4 minutes in length and address at least one of the five federal agencies listed below:

   4. United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agriculture and Food  Research Initiative
   5. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Medical and Prosthetic Research Program

Once you've settled on your federal agency(ies), your video should address at least three of the questions listed below:
   1. What is the mission of the agency(ies)?
   2. What type(s) of research is supported by the agency(ies)?
   3 Who performs the research supported by the agency(ies)?
   4. Where do the researchers perform the science that is supported by the agency(ies)? Is any research conducted in your state supported by the agency(ies)?
   5. What are some of the major discoveries that were supported through that agency(ies)?
