He received his B.A. from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, where he majored in biology and minored in South Asian studies. Andrew M. Pope, Ph.D., is the director of the Board on Health Sciences Policy at the IOM. With a Ph.D. in physiology and biochemistry, his primary interests are in science policy, biomedical ethics, and the envi- ronmental and occupational influences on human health. During his ten- ure at The National Academies and since 1989 at the IOM, Dr. Pope has directed numerous studies on topics that range from injury control, dis- ability prevention, and biologic markers to the protection of human sub- jects of research, National Institutes of Health (NIH) priority-setting processes, organ procurement and transplantation policy, and the role of science and technology in countering terrorism. Dr. Pope is the recipient of the National Academy of Sciences Presidentâs Special Achievement Award and the IOMâs Cecil Award. Marnina Kammersell, M.A., is a research associate at the Board on Health Sciences Policy. In addition to her work with the Forum on Medi- cal and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events, she is cur- rently assisting with the IOMâs review of the Title X Family Planning Program.

112 DISPENSING MEDICAL COUNTERMEASURES lyst at the NIH Clinical Research Policy Analysis and Coordination pro- gram within the Office of Biotechnology Activities. Her work at NIH focused on the ethics, policy, and regulation of clinical trials. Ms. Kam- mersell previously spent time as a research assistant at The George Washington Universityâs Center for International Science and Technol- ogy Policy, and she also served as a legislative intern for the House of Representatives, Committee on Science. She was a 2005 Christine Mir- zayan Fellow at The National Academies, where she worked on the Ris- ing Above the Gathering Storm report. She holds an M.A. in Public Policy with a focus on health policy from The George Washington Uni- versity and a B.A. in Philosophy from the University of Michigan. Alex Repace is a senior project assistant on the Board on Health Sci- ences Policy. Currently, he is supporting the Roundtable on Translating Genomic-Based Research for Health. Previously, he worked for the Board on Army Science and Technology for the National Research Council. He also has experience in research grants administration in the areas of biological and physical sciences. Mr. Repace has a B.S. in Mi- crobiology from University of Maryland at College Park and training and experience in public health. Heather Kaiser is pursuing her Master of Public Health with a focus on health policy and public health preparedness from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She is currently serving as a Board on Health Sciences Policy intern at the IOM to work on preparedness activities. She is also a medical student at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and she will fulfill the remainder of her M.D. re- quirements on completion of her M.P.H. With increased exposure to medicine on a broader perspective while pursuing her M.P.H., Ms. Kai- ser has continued to grow more ardent in her desire to contribute to fur- thering the practice of clinical medicine in the context of population- based research and policy formulation. In particular, she has developed an appreciation and inquisitiveness for improving health beyond individ- ual patient encounters through preventive and protective measures.
