Gift funds new Gene Media Forum at Syracuse University

izing the life sciences," says Donald Torrance, associate professor of broadcast journalism and documentary filmmaking in the Newhouse School and the Forum's co-director. "It has implications for every other human endeavor--ethics, finance, family planning, race relations, the arts. But as science becomes more complicated, science reporting becomes more challenging."

Torrance and an assistant, along with SU student workers, will be based at the Newhouse School and work mainly with broadcast journalists, while McGowan will be based at SU's Lubin House in Manhattan and work with print journalists. McGowan will be aided by Fred Jerome, a consultant who works with scientists and science journalists, and an administrative assistant.

Torrance is a documentary filmmaker, journalist and producer specializing in science. He has worked for "Science Times," the New York Times science television news magazine; National Public Radio; Science magazine; and The Nature Conservancy Magazine. His film work includes "Keepers of the Keys," a documentary on the decline of the South Florida seascape; and "Year 150," a documentary about the growth and influence of American science.

Including his work with SIPI, McGowan has spent more than 30 years working with the journalistic and scientific communities. He is also a Yale-educated engineer who has done graduate work in physics. He is a fund-raising, media outreach, and program development consultant whose clients have included the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, the Alfa Project: The Cooperation Channel, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the Lighting Research Center. He serves as the North American editor of Science Progress, as a contributing editor of worldlink, and as executive editor of Environment magazine.
