'Science Tikkun': Repairing the World through the Science of Neglected Diseases, Science Diplomacy, and Public Engagement
MetadataShow full item record
We define Science Tikkun broadly as an added role for leading U.S. scientists to elevate the profile of their knowledge and findings, and educate leaders in the areas of government, business, religion, the military, the media and other sectors in order to improve the human condition. Through a process of science diplomacy Science Tikkun also seeks to promote international cooperation and scientific collaboration to improve the human condition. The term derives from the ancient Jewish concept of tikkun olam (repairing the world) that gained momentum in the 16th century contemporaneously with Galileo, William Gilbert, and the origins of modern scientific approaches. There are key historical global health precedents for scientists to directly take on not only the science, but the necessary public advocacy and policy activities.
