Seminar on Latest Technology Considers Impact on Health
Earlier this month, during the prestigious 2003 AAAS Advancing Science Seminar, Technology and the Promise of Health, Gary Lynch, a professor in the department of psychiatry and human behavior at the University of California, Irvine, told the audience about a new class of cognitive enhancers called ampakines, which are being tested for safety and efficacy in the treatment of neurological conditions in humans, including Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, and other brain diseases.
We now have in hand small, safe molecules that can enhance memory, said Lynch, who is working with a pharmaceutical company to develop the drug. Everyone is waiting with bated breath, he added, to see if the results found in primates might be safely replicated in clinical trials for treatment of Mild Cognitive Impairment, or memory loss in elderly patients.
During the daylong event on 14 October, Lynch joined other prominent researchers in describing the cutting-edge technologies that offer advances in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer, heart disease, and neurodegenerative disease, and in detecting the genes that can confer vulnerability to those and other chronic conditions. Among the speakers at the event were molecular biologist Bruce Ames, cancer researcher Steven Rosenberg, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) director Nora Volkow, and geneticist Robert Nussbaum.
Keynote speaker Thomas Cech, who is also President of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, noted the extent to which fields of research have become interdependent, and described the Institute's new efforts to build a research community that will respond to the multidisciplinary nature of modern science.
Cech, recipient of the 1989 Nobel Prize for Chemistry and a professor at the
University of Colorado, Boulder, said that the research facility the Institute
is building on a 281-acre campus in Loudoun County, VA, will allow researchers
to apply state-of-the-art technologies to the study of biology and medicine.
New technologies have created the capacity to understand physiological and cellular mechanisms in model ways, said Philip H. Abelson, editor emeritus of the AAAS journal Science and organizer of the seminar. By combining diagnostic techniques with the emerging information from genomic and proteomic studies, an enhanced understanding of diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, as well as those affecting function of the human brain has emerged.
Elizabeth Nabel, Scientific Director, Clinical Research, at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at NIH, described the progress made in reducing mortality from heart disease. Looking to the future, she was optimistic in assessing the use of genetic technology in treating cardiovascular diseases, but urged caution in communicating information to the public. There is the potential for stem cells to repair damaged tissue, she said. But we want to approach this step by step, with a solid scientific approach, so we dont overhype it.
The audience of 120 at the 14 October seminar also heard presentations on the uses of biotechnology and new imaging technologies to combat addiction and other illnesses, such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Other researchers spoke about their work researching the genetic causes of Parkinsons disease and the use of nutrition and vitamin supplements to prevent chronic illness.
The event was one in a series of annual seminars that AAAS sponsors in the fall. In 2002, the program focused on Frontiers of Human Health, and considered research into the causes of Alzheimers disease, addiction, and mental illness, as well as disease prevention, stem cell research, smallpox, and the search for microbial causes of disease. Again, Abelson, editor of Science from 1962 to 1984, chose the speakers and decided on the program.
The seminar series is the brainchild of Dr. Philip Abelson, who is credited with being the person who took Science to a new level of quality and prominence, said AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner. He believes that we must look not only backward, but forwardbeyond the leading edge.
Editors Note: On 23 October, the leadership of AAAS joined other members of the scientific community in honoring Philip Abelsons significant contributions to science, marked with a dinner and symposium at the Carnegie Institution in Washington, D.C.
Deadline for Resolutions to AAAS Council
The next meeting of the AAAS Council will take place during the Annual Meeting in Seattle on 15 February 2004.
Individuals or organizations wishing to present proposals or resolutions for possible consideration by the Council should submit them in written form to AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner by 15 November 2003.
Items should be consistent with AAASs objectives and should be appropriate for consideration by the Council. Resolutions should be submitted in the traditional form, beginning with Whereas statements and ending with Therefore, be it resolved.
The Committee on Council Affairs will hold its open hearing on submitted items
at 2:30 p.m. on 14 February 2004. Late proposals or resolutions delivered to
the AAAS CEO in advance of this meeting will be considered provided that they
deal with urgent matters and are accompanied by a written explanation of why
they were not submitted by the November deadline.
Summaries of the Council meeting agenda will be available during the annual meeting at the AAAS Information Desk. A copy of the full agenda will be available for inspection in the AAAS Headquarters Office.
AAAS Picked to Help Boost S&T Ph.D.s Among Minorities
The David and Lucile Packard Foundation in Los Altos, CA, has asked AAAS to lead a major initiative to increase the proportion of underrepresented minorities with Ph.D.s in the science and engineering workforce.
AAAS is engaged in a range of activities that promote diversity in the science and engineering workforce, and AAAS staff has the experience and expertise to support the HBCU Graduate Scholars and connect them with valuable resources, said Barry D. Gold, Program Officer for Conservation and Science at the Packard Foundation.
For 11 years, Packard has funded doctoral studies in S&T for graduates of HBCUs, or Historically Black Colleges and Universities, which make up around 4% of the nations colleges and universities. According to an NSF report, Science and Engineering Degrees, by Race/Ethnicity of Recipients: 19912002, HBCUs produce almost 50% of African-American graduates in life sciences and more than 40% of African-American graduates in physical sciences and mathematics. In taking over management of the HBCU Graduate Scholars Program for the next 5 years, AAAS is being asked to provide an encouraging environment for the 88 current scholars, while preparing a report to assess the programs impact.
Its not just a question of managing the grant, but of determining
what difference the program has made, said Shirley Malcom, director of
the AAASs Directorate for Education and Human Resources. We are
also here to provide a supportive structure for the students in the program
and to provide an environment in which the students aspirations can be
AAAS will encourage also the development or expansion of programs that provide graduate school fellowships, using the Packard program as a model. At the programs annual meeting in Monterey in August, Walter E. Massey, President of Morehouse College in Atlanta, noted the tremendous need for funding of graduate education in the sciences for minority students. The $1.1-million program provides, a level playing field for these students to compete with their peers, Massey said, adding that approximately 75% of the students at HBCUs receive some financial aid.
As an undergraduate at Hampton College, the expectation was that you would go on to get a Ph.D., said biostatistician Sonya Snedecor, a 1995 scholar. The Graduate Scholars Program made that concept a reality.
AAAS Members Elected as Fellows
In September, the AAAS Council elected 348 members as Fellows of AAAS. These individuals will be recognized for their contributions to science at the Fellows Forum to be held on 14 February 2004 during the AAAS Annual Meeting in Seattle. The new Fellows will receive a certificate and a blue and gold rosette pin as a symbol of their distinguished accomplishments. Presented by section affiliation, they are:
