  1. Scientists Shift from Ruling Academicsto RunningGovernment Enago Academy is here to answer all your questions related to academic research and publishing.

  2. ENAGO ACADEMY Enago Academy offers comprehensive and up-to-date resources for researchers, publishers, editors, and students to learn and share their experience about research and publishing. Enago Academy also conducts workshops primarily for ESL authors, early-stage researchers, and graduate students. Our advanced workshop modules cater to the needs of researchers who want to know more about the issues pertinent to successful publication.

  3. ENAGO Enago is the trusted name in author services for the global research community. Since 2005, we have worked with researchers in more than 125 countries improving the communication of their research and helping them to achieve success in publication. We have offices in Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Istanbul, and New York. Enago operates globally with regional teams supporting researchers locally. Enago is the preferred partner for many leading universities and research organizations worldwide. In addition, we also collaborate with prominent publishers and societies to overcome regional challenges.

  4. 11/29/2018 Scientists Shift from Ruling Academics to Running Government - EnagoAcademy Scientists Shift from Ruling Academicsto RunningGovernment Last updated Nov 21,2018 For the longest time, scientists have ruled academia. They have made their mark in science and research. However, politics and other “unscientific” subjects were not their focus. This has also been mostly true for non-scientists with a background in the health sciences or “STEM” fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). These include engineers and healthcare workers. In addition, they have experience in academia or industry. But times are changing! Scientists are making their wayinto Congress and the US Congress election. Let us find out who are these scientists runninggovernment. Who Ran for US Congress with aSTEM Background? Nine people with STEM/health sciences background were just elected to the 116thUSCongress. Computer programmer Jacky Rosen ran against selling of consumer data by internet service providers without consent. She is a House representative in the present 115th Congress. In addition, she just won a seat in theSenate.

  5. 11/29/2018 Scientists Shift from Ruling Academics to Running Government - EnagoAcademy The other eight people won seats in the House. Ocean scientist Joe Cunningham drew the support of local officials of coastal cities. In like manner, industrial engineer Chrissy Houlahan supported making healthcare affordablefor all. Biochemist and simultaneously a biochemical engineer, Sean Casten ran against a representative who called climate change science “junk.” On the other hand, nuclear engineer Elaine Luria supported expanding the Affordable Care Act. In contrast, aerospace engineer Kevin Hern ran on repealing it. Pediatrician Dr. Kim Schrier will be the first Congressperson who isalso a doctor. Registered nurse Lauren Underwood ran on expanding healthcare access, whilst dentist Dr. Jeff Van Drew has supported stopping offshore drilling and preservingfarmland. What are their AcademicBackgrounds? The academic backgrounds of the newly elected officials vary. Some went to Ivy League schools,while some went to community and state schools. Besides a bachelor’s degree, several of them hold master’s degrees. A few of them also hold doctorates.The degrees of a few members are as follows: Rosen: Associate of Applied Science (AAS), Computing and Information Technology; Bachelorof Arts (BA),Psychology Cunningham: Bachelor of Science (BS), Ocean Engineering, Juris Doctor(JD) Houlahan: BS, IndustrialEngineering Casten: BA, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry; MS, Biochemical Engineering; Masterof Engineering Management(MEM) Luria: BS, Physics;MEM Hern: BS, Electro-Mechanical Engineering; Master of Business Administration(MBA) Shrier: BA, Astrophysics; Medical Doctorate (MD), residency inPediatrics Underwood: Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN); Master of Science in Nursing(MSN) Van Drew: Doctor of Medical Dentistry(DMD) Why Should Scientists Be inthe Government? The issues that the government is facing today are difficult. A few of these include problemslike lowering healthcare costs, creating sustainable energy resources, battling climate change, and countering threats to informationsecurity. As a matter of fact, the scientific community may have a role to play to combat these issues.Scientists have knowledge that can inform decision making in these areas. They are trained to solve problems and understand complex issues. Scientists in the government can benefit the academiccommunity. Their presence will possibly raise the awareness towards STEM fields and how they can help society. Moreover, the scientists in the parliament may put a human face on science. This, in turn, may leadto better funding of academicresearch. Making the Shift toPolitics

  6. 11/29/2018 Scientists Shift from Ruling Academics to Running Government - EnagoAcademy You may feel like getting into politics is daunting. There are ways to help with the shift. You may wantto join an academic programlike Elaine Luria, who attended the Sorenson Institute Political Leaders Program at the University of Virginia. Or may be you could focus your scientific work on problems with social relevance. You could try to get a grant for this research.Also, you could then tout these achievements in a political campaign. For example, Jacky Rosen helped to construct a solar array that decreased her synagogue’s energy bill. It is important to remember the value of publishing your work in these areas. The more visible your achievements are, the more visible you may be as a candidate running for local office or even theUS Congress. We are yet to see how these scientists-turned-politicians helpacademia. How do you think this will affect the academic community? Do you think it will be beneficial forthe researchers?
