Meghan publishes Medium post on impact of proposed budget on science


Meghan published a piece on Medium describing how President Trump’s proposed budget will stunt American scientific innovation, both because of cuts to funding for basic research and because of cuts to diversity programs. The Duffy Lab’s work would not be possible without support from the National Science Foundation, and our research has benefitted from various federal programs that help promote diversity in science (including work-study and the McNair Scholars Program).

This piece was related to Meghan’s position as a public engagement fellow for the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She’s looking forward to spending the week of June 12th in DC getting more training in public engagement!
