Graduate student video on sequestration wins prize
Date:2/7/2013

Bethesda, MD The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is pleased to announce the winner of its inaugural advocacy competition, Stand Up for Science. The competition solicited entries to demonstrate how federal research funding improves the health, quality of life, or economy of local communities in the United States. The winning entry was submitted by 'Stand With Science,' a group of graduate students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Their video, "What's Next," underscores the importance of federal funding to science and technology and highlights the adverse consequences that across the board spending cuts, also known as sequestration, could have on future, innovative research.

"We are excited to award 'Stand With Science' the $10,000 Prize and commend them for their outstanding work in science advocacy," stated Judith Bond, PhD, FASEB President. "Our best hope for future progress remains a strong commitment to science and technology."
