No-deal Brexit: Cancer treatments, climate change tech will be ‘compromised,’ researchers warn

(CNN)Vital research into new cancer treatments and technology combating climate change “will be compromised” if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a deal in place, university leaders have warned lawmakers.

Organizations representing more than 150 higher education providers across the country wrote to politicians and the government on Friday to say that a no-deal Brexit would lead to “an academic, cultural and scientific setback from which it would take decades to recover.”
The letter, signed by Universities UK, the Russell Group, GuildHE, MillionPlus and University Alliance, says “the valuable exchange of students, staff and knowledge would be seriously damaged.”
