... HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR THE UNITED STATES TO LEAD IN CHEMISTRY RESEARCH? Chemistry is both a central science and an enabling science.
From page 4...
... Fifty percent of the world's most frequently cited chemists are from the United States. In a further effort to characterize the leading chemists in the world, the panel asked experts from the United States and abroad to identify the "best of the best" whom they would invite to an international conference in their subfield.
From page 5...
... chemistry research is coming from a single source, the National Institutes of Health. Chemistry Research in the United States Is Projected to Remain Stronger in the Next Decade than in Any Other Single Country, but Competition Is Increasing In the near future, U.S.
From page 6...
... chemistry may find it increasingly difficult to attract and retain outstanding international graduate students and postdoctoral research associates as chemistry and opportunities in other nations improve.
