Washington, D.C. — Right now, President Joe Biden announced his intent to nominate Dr. Arati Prabhakar to provide as the director of the Workplace of Science and Technologies Policy and the president’s main adviser for science and technologies. Subsequent the announcement, Patrick Gaspard, president and CEO of the Middle for American Development, issued the pursuing assertion:
Dr. Prabhakar is the excellent leader to serve as the president’s chief adviser for science and technological know-how. Her perform across the personal sector, nonprofits, and governing administration equips her for cross-cutting difficulties, at a minute when the arduous work of fact-centered policymaking is much more significant than ever and the governance of tech platforms so evidently has an effect on the fragility of U.S. democracy, and below the vision of a president who has centered fairness in health care and local weather outcomes. In the midst of the continued local climate disaster and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we want solid leadership from the Business office of Science and Technologies Coverage on spurring thoughtful, ethical innovations that concretely increase people’s lives. We are grateful to Dr. Alondra Nelson for her get the job done providing that management, and I’m confident that Dr. Prabhakar will do the very same.
