The day following the election of Donald J. Trump as President, a survey of leaders in biotechnology in the United States, conducted by GENETIC ENGINEERING & BIOTECHNOLOGY NEWS (GEN), showed that Trump’s presidency will negatively impact NIH research funding as well as STEM education; a plurality said it will also spark a “brain drain” as foreign-born researchers educated in American universities will be more likely to leave.

Over 1,600 professionals, from industry and academia, responded to the survey.

The largest majority, 57.11%, believe that the president-elect will hurt research funding. 24.26% said it would not make a difference, and 9.79% said Trump’s presidency would prove positive.
