New video series highlights the people who fuel America's innovation pipeline
Date:7/17/2012

WASHINGTON, D.C., JULY 17, 2012 -- What is the payback on federal funding for scientific research? It is discoveries and new insights that lead to innovations like the laser, GPS and MRI, companies like Google and Genentech, and entire new industries like biotechnology. It is also the scientists, engineers, doctors and teachers cultivated as a result of this research who are among the most capable in the world. In its new "Innovators" video series, The Science Coalition (TSC) aims to remind the public and policymakers of this second payback and its long-term impact on the nation's competiveness: federally-funded basic research leads to knowledge that drives innovation and economic growth and it trains the next generation of scientists, ensuring that the cycle of discovery and innovation continues.

"As the specter of automatic, across-the-board budget cuts draws closer, it is essential to remind people not just of the role that science-driven innovation plays in our economy, but also of the caliber of people who conduct that research on our behalf," said Abby Benson, 2012 President of the Science Coalition and Assistant Vice President for Research and Federal Relations at the University of Colorado.

"Behind every discovery are people who have committed their careers to scientific inquiry; the vast majority of these people also are largely dependent on federal funding to support their work. Every time science budgets are cut or flat-funded, we risk losing a generation of talent and America's status as an innovation powerhouse," Benson said.

The "Innovators" video series highlights six researchers engaged in scientific discovery today. These individuals from Brown University, Stony Brook University, University of California, Los Angeles, University of Maryland and University of Pennsylvania are conducting research, running labs, teaching classes, mentoring young scientists, and, through new discoveries, techniques and insigh
