Throughout history, the pursuit of science has fostered working relationships across national borders and ideologies. As barriers to Cuban-U.S. exchanges ease, a panel of Cuban and U.S. scientific, education, and diplomatic leaders discuss the possibilities opened by recent agreements between Havana and Washington. Panelists explore what scientists and academics on both sides stand to gain from collaborations and removing barriers to cooperation.
