WASHINGTON—A National Academy of Sciences (NAS) committee expects to issue a report in June on terrorism that will provide the federal government with a road map for the use of science and technology in all aspects of counterterrorism, Richard D. Klausner, MD, former National Cancer Institute (NCI) director, told ONI.

Dr. Klausner and Lewis M. Branscomb, PhD, Albert Pratt Public Service Professor at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, co-chair the committee. About 150 outside experts and consultants are contributing to the effort, which is expected to inform the decision-making process for the fiscal year 2004 budget.

In addition to his NAS commitment, Dr. Klausner continues to pursue research part time at NCI. He resigned as director last fall after more than 6 years in the post. He originally left to head a new institute established by the Case Foundation of AOL founder Steven Case and his wife, but the Cases withdrew their commitment to the project.
