Bio: Mr. Bailey is the Executive Vice President of the National Association for Biomedical Research (NABR). As a government relations professional focused heavily on science and technology issues, his Washington career has spanned more than 18 years. In 1996, he was a Presidential appointee in the Clinton Administration serving as a Congressional Liaison for the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and he later went on to handle Congressional Affairs for the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). At Commerce, Bailey worked closely with leaders from industry, federal labs, universities and governments on issues impacting technology creators and users including innovation policy, broadband, biotechnology, tech-led economic growth, technology transfer, nanotechnology and workforce policy. On Capitol Hill, his bi-partisan experience includes time as both a legislative aide for Senator Dale Bumpers (D-AR) and as a Congressional Fellow for Representative Connie Morella (R-MD) where he managed issues coming before the House Committee on Science. Mr. Bailey holds a degree in Political Science and Legal Studies from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. As NABR’s then-Director of Government Affairs, he played an instrumental role in the bi-partisan passage of the federal Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (18 U.S.C. 43), signed by President Bush in 2006. Currently, he advises university and corporate member institutions on crisis management issues related to animal rights targeting and educates public policy makers in Washington on the critical value of biomedical research.
