M.R.C. Greenwood elaborates on the risky business of research universities

Washington, D.C.-04 April 2002-. In the aftermath of September 11, the science and technology community will be expected to contribute to new counter-terrorism efforts. Some of these programs may face new restrictions in access to information or to laboratory procedures. On Thursday, 11 April 2002, M.R.C. Greenwood, Chancellor of the University of California-Santa Cruz will address the consequences of such a trend during the 27th Annual Colloquium for Science and Technology Policy in Washington, D.C.

At the 11 April event, which is sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Greenwood will present the 2002 William D. Carey Lecture, "Risky Business: Research Universities in the Post-9/11 Era." She will ask her audience to consider the balance between the free flow of scientific ideas and results, and the risks associated with restrictions that may be implemented.

Greenwood notes that science has been the driver of most of recent economic growth, and that its integrity must be protected in the midst of trends that risk transforming the system that has produced such high-quality research.

"As a Carey Lecturer," Greenwood said, "I feel a great honor and an awesome responsibility in being given the privilege to present some challenges and suggest some ideas for ways in which science and technology, and their intersection with national policy, can become more important than ever in the quest for peace, security and justice."

Chancellor Greenwood, a visionary and role model for the next generation of great leaders in science policy, has spent a career encouraging women scientists to succeed, and inspiring students to excel in math and science. Greenwood was recently named to the Committee on Science and Technology for Countering Terrorism, a group formed by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council.
