BSA Distinguished Lecture

"Confessions of a President's Science Advisor"

Presented by Neal Lane, Rice University

Monday, September 11, 2006, 4:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

Every science advisor to the President of the United States has had interesting issues to deal with, crises to get through, and stories to tell. In this lecture, I will briefly review the history of the job, provide some examples of issues and events during the time I was in the White House (such matters as climate change, stem cells, the human genome, nanotechnology, research funding), and make a few observations about the present and speculations about the future.
