Does directing discussion on important science, technology, and national security issues facing our society interest you?  If so, then this is the panel to attend!  Science policy touches every facet of our scientific community:  public and private research funding, academia, and even foreign policy.  This panel will explore science policy careers at both government and non-government institutions. With speakers from a variety of backgrounds, attendees will learn about the diverse opportunities within this field as well as the entry requirements for available careers.
