Brazilian neuroscientist Stevens Rehen is aware of his privileged situation. He is the head of research at the D’Or Institute for Research and Education, a private and nonprofit organization founded in 2010 to promote scientific research and technological progress in healthcare and education. Mr. Rehen is also a professor at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), one of the largest and most traditional schools in Brazil. As a member of two prominent institutions—and mindful of the negative perspectives for his field in Brazil—Mr. Rehen strongly advocates for a balance between public and private funding as the ideal combination to help science flourish, as shown in other countries.
