Now that the presidential debates are over and the election less than two weeks away, we would like to know who you believe will be the stronger supporter of biotechnology. This includes the whole of life science research, industrial biotechnology, and commercial biotechnology. The idea of support not only covers government funding for basic biotech R&D. It also extends to the creation of a healthy business environment where biofirms can raise money to carry out their various projects and feel secure that their intellectual property and patents are adequately protected. The broader issue involves the choice of someone who will keep the U.S. in the forefront of biotech research in an increasingly globalized and competitive world.
Which presidential candidate do you think will be the stronger supporter of biotechnology?
