Washington State University: March 26 Lanning lecture

Pullman, WA | Posted on March 23rd, 2010

"Curing Cancer and Self Replicating Robots: Emerging Technologies at the Intersection of Science, Policy and Society" will be the topic of the free, public Lanning Distinguished Lecture at 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 26, in ETRL 101.

Sponsored by the College of Engineering and Architecture and the WSU Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service, the speaker will be Dietram A. Scheufele, the John E. Ross Professor in Life Sciences Communication at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He has affiliate appointments at the University of Washington's Center for European Studies in science and technology studies and European studies, and at the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) on templated synthesis and assembly at the nanoscale.

Scheufele is co-principal investigator of the National Science Foundation-funded Center for Nanotechnology in Society at Arizona State University (CNS-ASU). His work deals with the intersection of science, politics and society, and it is frequently discussed in national and international news outlets including the Wall Street Journal, US News and World Report, the BBC and Die Welt.

Scheufele is a former member of the Nanotechnology Technical Advisory Group to the U.S. President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and co-chairs the National Conference of Lawyers and Scientists, a joint committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Bar Association.

His scholarship and teaching have been recognized with the Robert M. Worcester Award and the Naomi C. Turner Prize from the World Association for Public Opinion Research, the Young Scholar Award for outstanding early career research from the International Communication Association, the Young Faculty Teaching Excellence Award from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University, and the Pound Research Award from the College of Agricultural & Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin.

The Lanning Distinguished Lecture was established in 1988 by the WSU Foundation for the purpose of providing lectures to engineering students on such subjects as: relating to others, ethics for living, integrity in business, professional responsibility, communication, self development and/or leadership. It is named for the late wife, Frances Lanning Dillon, of civil engineering alumnus Jack Dillon '41.
