Research and debt reduction

Saturday, October 1, 2011

"I predict that the future of science funding is rosy—except in the United States. If there were agencies akin to Standard & Poor’s charged with rating life-sciences futures in the U.S., we would be looking at a downgrade. We would owe such a downgrade largely to the complacency of federal policymakers, too many of whom appear willing to watch the U.S. research enterprise wither on the vine." — "Research and debt reduction," by Mary Woolley (The Scientist, October 1, 2011)

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.
