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. ’€œScience is 24/7. The government was shutdown but Alzheimer’€™s was not shutdown, cancer wasn’€™t, diabetes wasn’€™t.’€

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

You can change the image of things to come. But you can’t do it sitting on your hands … The science community should reach out to Congress and build bridges.
