ScienceInsider Covers the 2012 U.S. Election
27 September 2012 3:02 pm
As the U.S. election draws closer, both Republicans and Democrats are turning at least some of their attention to science and technology issues, and ScienceInsider is tracking what they say.
The 2012 Republican and Democratic platforms provided some insight into each party's stance on topics such as climate change and biomedical research. There were a few areas of bipartisan agreement: Both parties support federal spending on basic biomedical research and praise the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief and the Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy. But the parties are divided on issues such as climate change, stem cells, and energy policy.
