Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News (GEN) Blog: International Students in the United States - A Diminishing Pool of Talent for Biotech?
Date:4/9/2008

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Is the United States making it too difficult for foreign students to study in a post-9/11 America? What are the implications of a diminished pool of international talent for American biotechnology research and industrial activities?

Michael Koeris, a graduate student in the department of biomedical engineering at Boston University, tackles these issues today on Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News (GEN) BlogBiotech (http://www.genengnews.com/blog/item.aspx?id=381)

While the decline in the number of admitted foreign students has actually been reversed since 2006, the same is not true for the number of post-docs who play a crucial role in the creation of value and knowledge for the U.S. economy. One of the key questions put forward by Koeris: "Is the shift of perception and the subsequent decline in applications of international graduate students following the shift in policy reversible, or is the U.S. slowly losing its position as the globally dominant R&D nation?"
