Episode 25: International Cooperation Among Scientists to Meet Major Global Challenges

Originally Aired April 22, 2016

As Foreign Secretary of the National Academy of Science, University of Arizona Neuroscience Professor John Hildebrand represents the United States in international conversations that defy political differences. John is a critical member of an international network of scientific leaders who collaborate to assess major global challenges and to provide evidence-based advice to governments on how to address those challenges across international borders. Timely issues requiring particular attention today include pandemics, the decreasing availability of water and clean air, and the inadequacy of a well-trained science and engineering workforce.
