Advice to President-Elect Trump

There is a useful commentary by Dan Sarewitz in this week’s Nature on Trump’s election and the sort of science policies his presidency might consider pursuing.

Much is focussed on repatriating off shore funds to rebuild industry in the rustbelt – crafting an S&T policy around an industrial manufacturing strategy – as well as suggestions relating to energy and climate change. Sarewitz also advocates a programme that integrates biomedical data with e-patient records – an aspiration seen in the UK and elsewhere, though one which, of course, opens up ethical and governance questions.
