The United States has long been a magnet for people from scientists from all over the world. With both science and immigration under attack, Raphael Valdivia wonders if that legacy is at risk.
"Glad You Asked" is a series of short commentaries by Duke experts on issues that deserve public attention. In Season 2, Duke experts share a question they would like to pose to our nation's new president -- and describe why that question matters.
Valdivia is an associate professor of molecular genetics and microbiology in the Duke University School of Medicine and vice dean for basic science at Duke University.
