TSC Innovators

Behind every transformative advance are people — scientists and engineers, students and teachers — driven by a need to know and committed to the pursuit of discovery.

They are, in every sense of the word, innovators. In its new "Innovators" video series, The Science Coalition talks with people engaged in scientific discovery today. Their stories illustrate the fact, personally and passionately, that when the federal government funds scientific research we get so much more in return than that initial investment.

These individuals are conducting research, running labs, teaching classes, mentoring young scientists, and contributing to society through new discoveries, techniques and insights.

They are enhancing America's capacity to innovate — something that is essential in an increasingly competitive, knowledge-based global economy. The researchers, from across the country, represent a broad spectrum of scientific, medical and engineering backgrounds. In some cases, their work is already paying off in the form of new diagnostic technologies, better surgical outcomes, public health insights that save money and improve quality of life, and science that is contributing to the development of public policies to manage precious natural resources.

In other cases, their work represents significant potential: the ability to cure epilepsy, to get the body to re-grow tissue at a place or time that it wouldn't ordinarily do so, or to identify the ideal Navy SEAL candidate before that person ever goes through basic training.
