The Chemical Sciences Roundtable (CSR) was established in 1997 by the National Research Council
(NRC). It provides a science-oriented, apolitical forum for leaders in the chemical sciences to discuss
chemically related issues affecting government, industry, and universities. Organized by the NRC’s
Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology, the CSR aims to strengthen the chemical sciences by
fostering communication among the people and organizations—spanning industry, government, universities,
and professional associations—involved with the chemical enterprise.
The first panel of our program will
focus on the next generation of
scientists, “Science for All Students.”
We have three panelists participating in this
discussion: Drs. Leon Lederman, Richard Tapia,
and Marcia Linn.
Dr. Lederman is an internationally renowned
high-energy physicist, the Director Emeritus of
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in
Batavia, Illinois. He holds an appointment as
the Pritzker Professor of Science at Illinois
Institute of Technology in Chicago.
Many cancer patients are diagnosed at a stage in which the cancer is too far advanced to be cured, and most cancer treatments are effective in only a minority of patients undergoing therapy. Thus, there is tremendous opportunity to improve the outcome for people with cancer by enhancing detection and treatment approaches. Biomarkers will be instrumental in making that transition.
Much social science research on child development has focused on the role
played by social class and socioeconomic factors like childhood poverty and
family income, low parent education, and the more limited opportunities and
negative influences faced by minority children. And indeed, the survey data show
that the developmental problems listed above are more common among children
from low-income families, families where parents have less than a high school
education, and Black and Hispanic families.
