Dear Republicans and Democrats:
Can you please learn to collaborate and reopen the US goverment asap? I am currently working on developing international collaboration on safety with US scientists and we have a really promising meeting planned for end of October to interact on. But currently many of them are now furloughed and our progress has been brought to a standstill. Can't we have intelligent discussion and negotiations without paralysis of useful actions we are trying to progress in the US and internationally?
