I wrote this piece to reconcile my feelings of immense gratitude for our government grant support with the deep frustration I have with the current US budget situation. I'd love to hear your thoughts:
TL;DR - 1) Thank you! 2) We need to continue to support R&D, the ROI is huge.
Terrific piece. I've forwarded to my oldest daughter, a grad student (in MCB) at Berkeley. And it's such a small world: I'm another Berkeley Lab person who left to lead a startup. SBIR funding, now a Series A.
