Science During Crisis (April 21, 2017)

The American Academy is carrying out a two-year study on the coordination and deployment of interdisciplinary scientific teams during crisis response under the guidance of project co-chairs, Rita Colwell (Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland), Kristin Ludwig (Staff Scientist at the United States Geological Survey), and Gary Machlis (University Professor of Environmental Sustainability at Clemson University). On April 20 and 21, 2017, the Academy convened a meeting of crisis advisors, emergency response managers, and scholars to discuss best practices for science during crisis; a research agenda on the topic; and recommendations for policy makers at the federal/state level. The conclusions from the discussion will be published in a forthcoming Academy publication.
