AAAS Annual Meeting features symposium on Golden Goose Award
Date:2/12/2014

The Golden Goose Award will be the subject of a symposium on Saturday, February 15, at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Chicago. The session, which features two members of Congress and Golden Goose Awardee and Nobel Prize winner Martin Chalfie, will take place 10:00-11:30 a.m. CST in Grand Ballroom B of the Hyatt Regency.

At the symposium, the first 2014 winner of the Golden Goose Award will be announced. The award honors researchers whose federally funded research may not have seemed to have significant practical applications at the time it was conducted but has resulted in major economic or other benefits to society. It was created by a coalition of business, university, and science organizations as a way of reminding policymakers, the media, and the public that the federal government needs to fund research even if it sounds odd or obscure, because such research often leads to unexpected extraordinary results with significant long-term economic, health, or other benefits for society.

Saturday's symposium is titled, "The Golden Goose Award: Highlighting the Value of Federal Support for Basic Research." For more information, go to http://aaas.confex.com/aaas/2014/webprogram/Session7247.html.

In addition to Dr. Chalfie, speakers at the session will be Reps. Jim Cooper (D-TN) and Randy Hultgren (R-IL), and Dr. Leslie Tolbert, Regents' Professor of Neurobiology and former Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies at the University of Arizona.
