Advising the President: What Scientific Advice Does the President Get?

Friday, February 20, 2009 @ 1:00 PM-3:00 PM

Featured Speaker: Michael W. Friedlander, Ph.D., Professor of Physics, Department of Physics, Washington University in St. Louis

Many political decisions involve scientific knowledge— decisions ranging from the use of nuclear weapons, through the banning of smoking in public areas, to the safety requirements for prescription drugs and many consumer products. At the highest level, the President of the United States must make these decisions. How have the presidents selected their advisors and how has this affected the policy decisions made? You don’t want to miss this timely conversation with Dr. Michael Friedlander, an expert on science and pseudo science and the interface between science and society, as he talks about science and the U.S. president.
