1 thought on “Intersections of Science and Politics at Rutgers”

  1. Shanique, Thanks for the summary of this event. I am glad these workshops are a place where Rutgers faculty and students can discuss questions like the ones that you posed. Several of the points that you made suggest a need for science expertise in political decision making. I think it is critical that scientists are involved in government and politics; however, I often see involvement of those pushing their own agenda rather than what may be current in their research field. Perhaps a science advisory team approach would be a good way to involve more scientists and to ensure neutrality of the message to the government delegates.
