Dear CRS Members,
The White House has recently issued an Executive Order that places restrictions on travel to the U.S. for citizens of several countries.
CRS leadership is troubled by this policy on many levels, including the negative impact it will have on the ability of scientists to participate in the exchange of ideas that are vital to the advancement of science, including our field. CRS takes great pride in its culture of diversity and global reach. This diversity and our attitude of inclusion greatly strengthens our society.
While this order is deeply troubling, we note that it is currently scheduled to expire in 90 days, so it might not restrict attendance of the Boston meeting in July by our valued members in the affected countries. CRS is your professional society and a global home for your science. We recognize that diversity makes science stronger and collaboration across the globe is imperative for advancing our field.
President, Controlled Release Society
