Researchers and academics around the world are in the crosshairs of an assault on the worth of the scientific method. Here’s how to stand up for science.

Infectious disease researcher Romina Libster wants us to understand that vaccines are really not a matter of personal choice.

That means that each year, 1.5 million children in the developing world die needlessly. Neuroscientist and TED Fellow Catharine Young explains a novel approach she thinks can fix the problems.
