Science Research An Interdisciplinary Venture

So, is interdisciplinary science research the future for US science? Yale and Columbia University seem to think so.

The shift toward interdisciplinary research marks a rising need for scientists to rely on integrative tactics to solve modern scientific problems that can no longer be tackled with expertise in a single discipline, several experts said. At least for colleges that can afford to do so, adjusting to this idea is the first step toward remaining afloat in the rapidly evolving world of scientific research and education especially because, according to reports issued by National Science Board, the United States is “slipping” in its global dominance in scientific research and education.

So let's see if I can figure out how to use a stem-cell in a particle accelerator.
