BME 4440 Science Policy: from Concept to Conclusion

As scientific and technological discoveries continue to change our world and society at a rapid pace, it has become imperative that our policymaking approach be informed by science. From energy policy to climate change, from healthcare to bioterrorism, from science education to technology innovation it has become critical to have professional scientists and engineers actively engaged in the policymaking process. However, a fundamental issue facing today's government is the fact that too few scientists have experience with the inner workings of public policymaking and too few policymakers have significant science or engineering knowledge. This large gap between the two fields needs to be bridged if we are to have a society where science influences the course we take. Science Policy, from Concept to Conclusion aims to fill this void.
