From Lab Bench to Front Bench: Opportunities for Scientists?

The discussion, moderated by Imran Khan (CaSE), featured Mark Henderson (Wellcome Trust), Alice Jones (Goldsmiths University) and Chris Tyler (Cambridge Centre for Science and Policy).

Discussion points for the evening included:

  • Why should scientists care about politics — and should we make politicians care about science?
  • Does science have a low profile in politics? If so, why?
  • How can scientists make their voices heard by policymakers and politicians?
  • What can scientists do to promote science and evidence-based advice in government?
