Trump Versus Clinton: Medical R&D

Hillary Clinton

Clinton has said she will support investing in science and technology research and development, as well as in technology transfer. She has also pledged to improve the patent system to reward innovators, and ensure an effective copyright system that protects creative content, while unlocking access to orphan works and promoting open-licensing arrangements for materials supported by federal grant funding. She also said she will affirm strong consumer protection values without stifling innovation.

Donald Trump

Trump has said that what he hears about the National Institutes of Health is "terrible."

He also told Science Debate that although he's committed to balancing the federal budget, investing in healthcare, science, engineering, and "other areas that will make the lives of Americans better, safer, and more prosperous" should remain a priority.
