ASBMB Responds to AARP Ad Criticizing NSF

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology released a press statement yesterday that responded to a recent television ad from the AARP criticizing basic scientific research projects.  In the statement, ASBMB points out the societal benefits that have resulted from advances in scientific research, and urges the AARP to instead focus its efforts on “promot[ing] policies that will both improve human health and strengthen the American economy.”
