Biologist receives the 2008 AAAS Public Understanding of Science and Technology Award
Date:2/11/2009

Hazen wrote, in nominating Miller. "Few scientists have so effectively reached out to the nonscientific community."

In addition, Miller's accomplishments include dozens of public lectures; contributions to media organizations, such as his work as an adviser to PBS's NOVA program; service to professional organizations, including AAAS; and many appearances on radio and television. He received his Ph.D. in biology from the University of Colorado in 1974, and his undergraduate degree from Brown. He taught at Harvard for six years as a lecturer and as an assistant professor before returning to Brown in 1980. His most recent book is Only a Theory: Evolution and the Battle for America's Soul, which was published in June 2008.

Established in 1987, the AAAS Award for Public Understanding of Science and Technology recognizes scientists or engineers who, while working in their fields, have also contributed substantially to public understanding of science and technology. Contributions include books, articles in magazines and newspapers, broadcasting, lecturing, museum presentation and exhibit design.

The AAAS Awards for Public Understanding of Science and Technology will be presented at the 175th AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, which will take place 12-16 February 2009. The awards ceremony and reception will be held at The Fairmont Chicago on Saturday, 14 February at 5:00 p.m.
