University of Kentucky Researchers Speak Out: Stop the Sequester

 

 

University of Kentucky physiologist Michael B. Reid, mechanical engineer Suzanne Weaver Smith, and chemist John Anthony convey the specific impact of sequestration (automatic cuts in research and other government spending) on the next generation of American scientists. These faculty investigators join academics across the country who made videos for Science Works for U.S., a website of the Association of American Universities, the Science Coalition, and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.
