Past Events

The Roundtable on Public Interfaces of the Life Sciences (PILS) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine was a multidisciplinary forum that ran from 2013 to 2015. The PILS Roundtable is no longer active, but many of the discussions initiated during its workshops have continued through other venues within and outside of the NASEM.

This website is no longer regularly updated.
