Last year, while  a Resident Fellow  at the  Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in Italy, I had the time and space to write on a topic I’ve been invested in most of my professional career: the need to translate research into policy for a better world.

There is so much research that has the potential to influence our lives for the better, and there is plenty of evidence that the journey between academic publication and actual policy change can take place independent of political ideology.  This is important and good news in our polarized nation today.

I encourage you to read my article Bipartisan Science that was just published in the Fall 2015 journal of the National Academies of Sciences, Issues in Science and Technology. You can find the article online here, and I hope you will share it with others.
