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

During that time, NSF also secured funding for the construction of the Large Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), as well as construction of one of the Gemini telescopes, and for the replacement of the U.S. research station at the South Pole.

During his time in Washington, Lane became increasingly concerned about the public's lack of understanding of science and its impact on people's lives as well as scientists' lack of understanding of the public. He was an early promoter of the concept of the "civic scientist." Returning to Rice, following his time in Washington, Lane has continued to be active in science and technology policy and education.

The SURA Distinguished Friend of Science Award was established in 2006 to commemorate the organization's 25th Anniversary. SURA's Executive Committee manages the solicitation, screening and selection of the recipient for this award. Past honorees included U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander and John Warner; Norman Augustine, former CEO of Lockheed Martin and advocate for American leadership in research and innovation; and Chuck Robb, former governor and U.S. Senator from Virginia. Each of SURA's 62 member institutions is eligible to nominate candidates for the award.

Lane will be presented the award and a $20,000 honorarium at a breakfast reception held in conjunction with the SURA Board of Trustees Fall Meeting in Washington, DC.
