How the Government Shutdown affects You!

Jan 4, 2019, 12:12 PM by Melodi Moore
Day 14 of the government shutdown  - Friday, January 4, 2019 -  is beginning to affect those of us at UTMB more.  While essential functions (such as airport security screening) continue, other activities such as national park and museum closings, new research and grant awards, and travel by agency personnel have been suspended in recent days.  The Washington Post reports that the travel ban has also disrupted two scientific conferences.
