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

ntist' is a fitting aspiration in today's public policy arena," said Jerry P. Draayer, SURA President & CEO. "With increasing challenges for science and decreasing support for funding it, Professor Lane's efforts to communicate the economic worth and practicality of research is more important than ever."

Born in Oklahoma City in 1938, Dr. Lane earned his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Oklahoma. Early in his career he received the W. Alton Jones Graduate Fellowship and held an NSF Doctoral Fellowship, an NSF Post-Doctoral Fellowship (while in residence at Queen's University, Belfast, Northern Ireland) and an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellowship (at Rice University and on research leave at Oxford University). He earned Phi Beta Kappa honors in 1960 and was inducted into Sigma Xi National Research Society in 1964, serving as its national president in 1993. His research contributions have been in theoretical atomic and molecular physics, particularly the theory of atomic collisions.

Dr. Lane has received numerous prizes and awards, including the AAAS Philip Hauge Abelson Award, AAAS William D. Carey Award, American Society of Mechanical Engineers President's Award, American Chemical Society Public Service Award, American Astronomical Society /American Mathematical Society/American Physical Society Public Service Award, NASA Distinguished Service Award, Council of Science Societies Presidents Support of Science Award, Distinguished Alumni Award of the University of Oklahoma, and over a dozen honorary degrees. In 2009, Dr. Lane received the National Academy of Sciences Public Welfare Medal, the American Institute of Physics K.T. Compton Medal for Leadership in Physics, and the Association of Rice Alumni Gold Medal for service to Rice University.

At NSF, Lane worked tirelessly to convince the Congress to increase research funding, even during the budget-cutting climate of the mid-1990s and to support basic research.
