The unprecedented departure of young life science Ph.D.s and postdocs from academia raises all sorts of questions — for universities, life science companies, and anyone interested in the future of biomedical research.

We explore some of the key looming questions here, going beyond a recent STAT special report that chronicles this academic exodus and looking ahead to the future. As you’ll see, there are no easy answers, but we take a close look at what has (and hasn’t) happened so far in academic science to understand what might happen next.
