ScienceWorksForU.S.

ScienceWorksForU.S. is a joint project of The Science Coalition, the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities to inform policymakers and the public of the devastating impact that sequestration is having on federally funded scientific research.

Universities conduct the majority of basic scientific and medical research in the United States and, as such, are ground zero for the discovery and innovation that fuels the economy, as well as for the education of future scientists, engineers, doctors, teachers and entrepreneurs.

Innovation Deficit

Close the Innovation Deficit is an effort by the business, higher education, scientific, and high-tech manufacturing communities who are concerned about cuts and stagnating federal investments in research and higher education at a time when other nations are investing heavily in these areas. The Science Coalition supports the effort to Close the Innovation Deficit and believes sustained federal investments in research and higher education are necessary to develop the ideas, people, and innovations that power our economy, create jobs, improve health, and strengthen our national security.

SCIENCE 2034

What does science hold for the future? SCIENCE 2034 is an initiative by The Science Coalition to mark our 20th anniversary by looking forward 20 years and focusing on the possibilities of the future.

While we don’t know what the next “Big Thing” will be, we can make some educated predictions about how well-funded scientific research might change our lives and our world. At www.Science2034.org we ask scientists, policymakers and thought leaders to weigh in and tell us what they think science will enable 20 years from now and what that will mean to individuals, society and the world.

The Science Coalition Mourns the Loss of Science Champion Rep. Louise Slaughter

March 16, 2018

WASHINGTON – The Science Coalition (TSC) released the following statement in response to the news that Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY-25) passed away early Friday morning:


 “The Science Coalition mourns the loss of Representative Louise Slaughter, a true champion of science and basic research. Having served Western New York for decades, and as the only microbiologist in Congress, Slaughter’s commitment to science was undeniable.


 “In the early 1990’s she championed legislation to ensure that women and minorities were included in all federal health trials, established the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) at the National Institutes of Health, and allocated the first $500 million in federal funding for breast cancer research at the NIH. As a member of leadership, and as Ranking Member of the House Rules Committee, she played an instrumental role in advocating for critical investments in basic research and helped lead the debate on important legislation like the America COMPETES Act.


 “She was also a great supporter of research institutions in New York State. Because of her commitment to advancing federally-funded basic research in New York and beyond, she was the recipient of the Science Coalition’s Champion of Science award in 2013.”
