Description:

This is an article found in The Physiologist. For more than a year, our national attention was consumed by the historic election which culminated with the election of Barack Obama. Now that the ballots are counted and the transition to a new administration and a new Congress has begun, scientists want to know: what is the outlook for biomedical research and science policy under our new national leadership? Many high-profile researchers supported President-Elect Obama’s campaign, including 61 Nobel Laureates whose public endorsement letter declared that, “Senator Obama understands that Presidential leadership and federal investments in science and technology are crucial elements in successful governance…” (1) Is this true and what does it really mean for medical research? And will the new Congress support this vision?
