Jane Lubchenco receives the 2005 AAAS Public Understanding of Science and Technology Award

AAAS, the world's largest general scientific society, today named Jane Lubchenco, Wayne and Gladys Valley Professor of Marine Biology and Distinguished Professor of Zoology at Oregon State University, to receive the prestigious Public Understanding of Science and Technology Award for her exemplary commitment to, and leadership of, public understanding of science initiatives in public policy and professional arenas.

Dr. Lubchenco's career and extracurricular activities demonstrate her commitment to communicating science and technology to such diverse audiences as civic groups, school children, and local, national and international leaders as well as religious leaders and captains of business and industry. She also has used her substantial skills to create and lead at least two different organizations that train other scientists to become active public communicators.

"Dr. Lubchenco has shown us that public communication is both necessary and appropriate for scientific leadership," said Alan I Leshner, chief executive officer of AAAS and executive publisher of the journal, Science. "Through her example, many scientists and engineers are moving beyond efforts just to educate or help the public understand scientific concepts, and instead are promoting an open dialogue on issues affecting all our lives."

A marine ecologist by training, Dr. Lubchenco is engaged in a wide range of scientific, teaching and public service activities to help address serious environmental problems by making the best possible information and expertise more accessible to government leaders and improving the public's understanding of ecology. She launched the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program in 1998 under the Ecological Society of America to help outstanding environmental scientists become more effective communicators to the public and to policy-makers, as well as the media and private sector. In 1999, she co-founded the Communication Partnership for Science and the Sea, a
