To paraphrase a Chinese proverb…we are truly living in interesting times. Since our last issue in 2008, we have been witness to many landmark events in the history of this Nation, from the election of our country's first African-American President to the emergence of an unprecedented economic crisis. From the perspective of science, these events have, in subtle and not so subtle ways, altered the landscape for those of us working in the basic and clinical science-based fields. The most dramatic change, albeit mostly psychological at this point in time, is the clear shift from an administration that had an adversarial relation with and aversion to the sciences, to one that embraces the sciences as a catalyst for change and views science as a critical partner for the future growth and prosperity of our country. It has been encouraging to hear from President Obama in the context of very high profile speeches, the prominent role that science will have at the table in shaping his administration's energy, health, and economic policies.
