Research!America President and CEO Mary Woolley on Al Jazeera America News Network, October 18, 2013
Big Loss for Science
Science and Medical Research Impacted by Government Shutdown
Last Friday, Research!America President and CEO Mary Woolley was interviewed by Al Jazeera America television news network on the effects of the government shutdown on science and medical research. ’Science is 24/7.

When asked about the biggest problem about the shutdown for science, Woolley said, ’I think it was this dispiriting message that science isn’t prioritized anymore.’
