Brexit and Its Impact on Research in Academia

Brexit and Its Impact on Research in Academia On June 23rd 2016, almost 52% of British citizens voted to leave the EU. The result of this referendum led to uncertainty in the UK, including the impact of “Brexit” on research in academia. On August 30th 2016, Luke Bonser, a postdoc at the University of California, San Francisco who trained in the UK, discussed with Professor Stephen Holgate from the University of Southampton, what Brexit might mean for the future of scientific research in the UK.

Professor Holgate is a prominent physician scientist in the field of asthma with over 980 peer-reviewed publications and numerous awards and recognitions. He has made key contributions, including the identification of the first novel asthma gene (ADAM 33), the discovery of viruses as a major cause of asthma exacerbations, and highlighting the importance of the epithelium on lung inflammation and airway remodeling.
