Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3), ranking member of the Research Subcommittee of the Science, Space & Technology Committee, issued the following statement today on the departure of National Science Foundation Director Subra Suresh:

"During his tenure at the National Science Foundation, Dr. Subra Suresh was a leader in expanding interdisciplinary research and international science cooperation, two important steps needed for the American research community. He also understood the need to continue strong support for basic research while also supporting innovative ways to spur technology transfer. I certainly appreciated his leadership and vision when we established NSF's Innovation Corps program, which is utilizing experienced entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to teach NSF research grant award winners how to be entrepreneurial. I know the work done by Dr. Suresh will provide a solid foundation for his successor to build upon. I wish Dr. Suresh all the best in his next position as president of Carnegie Mellon University."
