VIDEO: Johns Hopkins President Ronald Daniels

Ronald J. Daniels is the 14th president of Johns Hopkins University. He is a thought leader on the issue of declining biomedical research funding and the impact on young researchers, covering the topic and recommendations for addressing this crucial concern in articles in the Wall Street Journal and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Here we talk to him in greater detail about the implications of a “brain drain” in academic science, steps to prevent this and the promise that biomedical research holds for the future.

If you want to make sure that we realize the benefits from this and other scientific advances, let your members of Congress know that federal funding for science matters and should be made a higher national priority. The Science Coalition’s Science Matters toolkit can help you get started.
