On 23 June 2016 I will vote on the UK's future in the EU: to stay or to leave.

If we leave, the outcome could have wide-ranging effects, including for science in the UK. The UK punches well above its weight in the scientific world. We publish an enormous amount of research and pick up lots of Nobel Prizes.

Many leading scientists argue that getting funding and collaborating is made easier by being part of the EU. Others think leaving won't make much difference.

It's complicated, but let's hope UK science will thrive whatever the outcome.
