The cogs that move the science policy wheel

WASHINGTON, DC On 18-19 September, AAAS, the science society, celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Science and Technology Fellowship Program, launched in 1973 to provide the US Congress with the technical expertise that underlies so much federal legislation.

To consider the future of science policy and the science that will shape it, fellows past and present will gather at an event whose speakers include experts in science policy as it influences the areas of health, global security, climate, and the basic sciences.

The Science and Technology Fellowship Program now has 1565 alumni--accomplished scientists and engineers who competed fiercely for the chance to spend a year working for Congress or, more recently, for one of the federal agencies scattered throughout the nation's capital.

Notes one federal legislator, "AAAS Fellows bring enormous learning, energy and curiosity to my office, as well as a fresh perspective. Indeed, many of my most valued staffers began their careers as AAAS Science Fellows."

Speakers include:

  • Alan I. Leshner, Chief Executive Officer, AAAS

  • Richard Meserve, President, Carnegie Institution of Washington

  • The Honorable Sam Nunn, Co-Chairman, Nuclear Threat Initiative

  • R. Alta Charo, Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development and Professor of Law and Medical Ethics, School of Law and Medicine, University of Wisconsin (Former Fellow)

  • Bruce Sterling, Author, Distraction (1998), Zeitgeist (2000) and Tomorrow Now: Envisioning the Next Fifty Years (2002)

  • Maureen I. McCarthy, Acting Director, Office of Research and Development Science and Technology Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

  • Mohamed T. El-Ashry, Former CEO and Chairman, The Global Environment Facility

  • The Honorable Rush Holt (D-NJ)
