Join fellow alumni for a casual dinner with Stanford Professor Arthur Bienenstock. Sponsored by the Washington DC Stanford Association and the Stanford Alumni Association, the dinner will be held at the home of Nelson Roos, ‘00. After a brief description of Stanford’s Wallenberg Research Link, the discussion will focus on some of the most important recent issues faced by the National Science Board, the governing body of the National Science Foundation.

Arthur Bienenstock is a professor of photon science, emeritus, director of the Wallenberg Research Link and special assistant to the president for federal research policy at Stanford. In 2012, President Obama appointed him to the National Science Foundation’s governing body, the National Science Board. Formerly, he served as associate director for science of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy under President Clinton. At Stanford since 1967, he served as vice provost for faculty affairs, director of the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, associate director of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center and vice provost for research and graduate policy. Professor Bienenstock has published over 100 papers in scientific and science policy journals, and his graduate students and postdoctoral associates hold major research and leadership positions throughout the world. In 2009, he received the Cuthbertson Award for exceptional contributions to Stanford, and in 2013 he was elected to membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
