Troublemaker or Trusted Advisor? Lawrence Wein, Stanford University
When Lawrence Wein, an expert in bioterror and former Editor-in-Chief of Operations Research,prepared to publish an important paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science on preventing contamination of America’s milk supply, the Bush Administration tried to block it. Now Prof. Wein’s recommendations on preventing attacks using botulism and anthrax, as well as recommendations about securing U.S. borders, are U.S. policy – as well as the subject of opinion pieces in The New York Times and other trusted editorial pages.
Hear a special interview with Prof. Wein, who delivered the 2008 INFORMS Philip McCord Lecture, on homeland security and staying one step ahead of the next terrorist strike.
Please stay on topic, be civil, and be brief.
