DISCOVER's Science Policy Project: Craig Venter

By Melissa Lafsky | September 10, 2008 12:24 pm

What are the most important things the next U.S. president needs to do for science? To cut through the jargon and find an answer, we bring you the DISCOVER Science Policy Project, in which we give a group of the country’s most celebrated scientists and thinkers the chance to respond to the following question:

What are the three most important things the next president can do to positively impact scientific research in the United States?

In the November issue of DISCOVER, we compile and analyze the results. In the meantime, we will be posting each response in its entirety here on Reality Base. Today’s entry is by world-renowned geneticist Craig Venter. Feel free to offer your own ideas and analysis in the comments section. All past responses can be found here.

Make alternative energy the number one priority of the administration, with a mixture of new funding for basic research and incentives for introduction of new renewable energy solutions.

End the ban on federal funding for Human Stem Cell Research.

Overhaul the existing federal system for funding scientific research to a system that is not only tolerant of risk but one that rewards true innovation and multidisciplinary approaches to solve our nations needs.
