Mains Associates Profiles High-Value Benefits from Taxpayer-Funded Research

Share Article

Mains Associates now provides access to a science knowledge base highlighting NASA's research contributions to challenges in the biosciences related to space exploration. Many of these results can also benefit the ultimate funders of this research, the public.

the public is often unaware of the real value that taxpayer-funded research brings, as it is often based on complex, technical research.

The science communications firm Mains Associates, announced that they will share their collection of compelling stories, articles, and reports originally funded-by, and written primarily for, NASA. This unique archive of results from NASA researchers across the country has provided inputs to, or the foundation for, important biomedical and healthcare applications on Earth. Written mostly as review articles, they enable non-specialists and non-scientists to access and appreciate some of the valuable research supported primarily by taxpayer dollars.

"Because government projects and programs are not allowed to 'market' themselves," notes Founder Richard Mains, "the public is often unaware of the real value that taxpayer-funded research brings, as it is often based on complex, technical research."

NASA, along with other government-funded research-based agencies, has long produced valuable knowledge and important innovations for fighting diseases and improving healthcare, yet few Americans are aware of this. Mains Associates aims to make this information accessible in a useful format. To that end, they encourage writers of such articles to submit them for review, and will continue to create their own articles to support broader understanding of the value of technical government-funded research.
