London: Thirteen of Britain's top scientists signed a letter backing the campaign to remain in the EU after a dramatic new poll boosted the momentum behind the Brexit campaign less than two weeks before the June 23 referendum.

Nobel Prize winners including Peter Higgs — after whom the Higgs Boson, believed to explain how matter acquires mass, is named — and geneticist Paul Nurse said the loss of research funding would be one consequence of leaving the bloc.

"The prospect of losing EU research funding is a key risk to UK science," he said.
