Biophysical Society to host discussions on the teaching of evolution and on the energy crisis
Date:1/18/2008

The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce that it will host two public affairs sessions during its Joint Meeting with the International Biophysics Congress in Long Beach, California, February 2-6, 2008. The special sessions complement the scientific talks and poster sessions that take place during the five day event and will give scientists the opportunity to discuss current policy issues facing our nation. The first session will focus on the energy crisis and the role of basic research in addressing that crisis. The second session will focus on the role of professional scientists in the debate over teaching evolution and Intelligent Design in K-12 science classrooms.

Biophysics and the Energy Crisis: What We are Doing, What We Can Do, and How
Sunday, February 3, 2:30-4:00 pm, Long Beach Convention Center

As the supply of global oil decreases, the concern and fear amongst oil-dependent nations continues to mount. In December, Congress passed the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. To reduce the United States dependence on oil, the law sets a national fuel economy standard of 35 miles per gallon by 2020, and sets a mandatory renewable fuel standard for 2022. Basic research related to alternative fuel sources is an integral part of reaching that goal. In this session, speakers will provide an overview of current U.S. policys regarding energy will be provided. In addition, the role that biophysics research maintains in the quest for cost-effective alternative fuel supplies (from fuel cell-hydrogen technology to biodiesel) will be discussed. Speakers include James Allen, a professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Arizona State University, Elias Greenbaum a Fellow at the Oakridge National Lab, and Nathan S. Lewis, a professor of Chemistry at the California Institute of Technology.
