Scientific community/Science policy

AAAS presented recommendations to the U.S. House Science, Space and Technology Committee on ways to support the research community – including early-career researchers – as it faces challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With a $2 million matching gift to support fellows on Capitol Hill, Joan and Irwin Jacobs seek to boost lawmakers’ access to scientific knowledge.

Two 2020-2021 fellows reflect on their new responsibilities and what they hope to gain from the fellowship experience.

The devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic have served as a wake-up call to the scientific community, offering it the opportunity to emerge more effective at addressing society’s most pressing needs.
