BMJ: Trump’s policies risk ‘head-on collision’ with science, health care

February 23, 2017

“We are particularly concerned that Trump’s administration is acting in ways that will suppress research and limit communication on scientific topics that it deems politically inconvenient,” Jose G. Merino, U.S. clinical research editor for BMJ, and colleagues wrote.
