Innovation Needs Sustained Government Support, Says Susan Hockfield

A virus genetically engineered to build battery components is one example of how 21st century innovation will be driven by the convergence of scientific disciplines, said AAAS President Susan Hockfield at a 2018 AAAS Annual Meeting press breakfast. These creative solutions are desperately needed, she said, as the global population is expected to reach 9.5 billion people by 2050. From health care to clean water, Hockfield noted, “The way we are currently providing ourselves with all the necessities of life is insufficient to meet the challenges of that size population.”
