Putting Our Principles into Practice

Scientific progress depends on the free flow of ideas.

Putting Our Principles into Practice

Dear Academy Members:

On January 31st I sent a Webinar Calendar for updates.

The mission of the New York Academy of Sciences is to advance scientific research, education and policy. But this can ONLY be achieved through collaboration and collective action on the part of the scientific community and its supporters around the world. As an Academy Member we know you share this mission.  We also know that you are a busy professional and your time is limited. I hope you'll find a way to be involved in whatever form you can manage: join the March for Science, advocate for science and science-based policy through your own networks, volunteer whatever time and resources you can spare. Every contribution counts and the collective impact of all these individual actions can be enormous.

Ellis Rubinstein
President and Chief Executive Officer
The New York Academy of Sciences
