Abstract:

COVID-19 has not affected all scientists equally. A survey of principal investigators indicates that female scientists, those in the bench sciences and, especially, scientists with young children experienced a substantial decline in time devoted to research. This could have important short- and longer-term effects on their careers, which institution leaders and funders need to address carefully.
