    Scientists are working/work nowadays...

    Which is more correct to say:
    1) Scientists are working nowadays to find cures for serious diseases.
    or
    2) Scientists work nowadays to find cures for serious diseases.

    Re: Scientists are working/work nowadays...

    Both are grammatical and natural and basically mean the same thing.

    But you're saying that they've only begun looking for cures recently. Haven't they been doing it for a long time?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
