I believe in policy based on facts and science. Taking away funding from medical and scientific research will stall our Country’s progress. Fewer government grants will directly impact researchers in our community.  The government should be investing in research, not taking away precious research dollars. Investing in research stimulates the economy and strengthens our country’s position in the world market. As an analytical chemist prior to law school, I’m absolutely committed to using science and fact to back up public policy.
