U.S. Immigration Travel Ban

Many U.S. universities, academic centers, and health organizations have expressed deep concern about the Administration's executive order that has denied U.S. entry to people who bring unique expertise to the practice of medicine and the conduct of biomedical research. Much of the progress that has been achieved against a host of diseases has been fueled by researchers from all corners of the world, they say, adding that for this progress to continue it is going to require an even greater commitment to collaborations among international organizations, governments, public and private institutions, and individuals dedicated to this cause.

Many U.S. academic and health organizations say the Administration’s executive order to restrict entry from certain countries will stall progress in biomedical research.

Do you think that the Administration’s immigration travel ban will hinder scientific and medical progress and render the U.S. less competitive over time?
