The Evolution of STEM Research Culture
In this panel, scientists around the world discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has upended the practice of science, interrupted and refocused research, jeopardized funding, and forced pauses in graduate studies and career advancement. The program also explores how the pandemic has brought a renewed public interest in science, and triggered an unprecedented level of global collaboration.
The discussion was presented as part of the New York Academy of Sciences’ 202nd Annual Meeting. The program was hosted by Academy Associate Director of Network Engagement and Membership, Rosanna Volchok, and moderated by Academy President Nicholas Dirks.
The panelists were: Lennart Bergström, PhD, Stockholm University; Mary Collins, PhD, Provost, Okinawa Institute of Science & Technology; Kizzmekia Corbett, PhD, Senior Research Fellow & Scientific Lead, Coronavirus Vaccines & Immunopathogenesis Team, Viral Pathogenesis Laboratory, Vaccine Research Center, NIAD/NIH; and Andrea Morris, PhD, Assistant Dean and Director of Career and Professional Development, The Rockefeller University.
