SURA to honor former NSF director, White House science advisor
Date:9/19/2011

The Southeastern Universities Research Association today announced that Neal F. Lane, former Director of the National Science Foundation and former chief White House science advisor, would receive SURA's 2011 Distinguished Friend of Science Award at its Board meeting on November 9. The award honors an individual whose extraordinary efforts "fulfill the SURA mission of strengthening the scientific and technical capabilities of the Southeast and nation."

"SURA honors one of our own with this recognition of a great scientist and advocate for research," said Charles W. Steger, President of Virginia Tech and Chair of the SURA Council of Presidents and Executive Committee. "His efforts in the White House to grow the NSF budget by 17 percent in his last year helped pave the way for improving the nation's research investments in the physical sciences for the next decade."

Lane served as Assistant to the President for Science and Technology and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, from August 1998 to January 2001, and as Director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) from October 1993 to August 1998. At OSTP, Lane continued his efforts to increase research funding, especially for the physical sciences and engineering. He was instrumental in establishing the National Nanotechnology Initiative, nearly doubling the national expenditure in nanotechnology. The initiative, having just celebrating its 10th anniversary, now has an annual budget of nearly $2 billion.

Prior to his service at NSF, Lane was Provost and Professor of Physics at Rice University in Houston a SURA member institution a position he had held since 1986. He joined the Physics Department at Rice in 1966 as an assistant professor. He took leaves from Rice to serve as Chancellor of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, as well as an earlier leave to work as NSF's Director of the Division of Physics.
