The National Research Council’s Board on Life Sciences — which oversees studies on topics that include genomics, bioterrorism, stem cells, and other areas of interest in the life sciences — hosted a one-day symposium to mark its achievements of the past 25 years and look forward to future research. Their work identified that the integration of various disciplines into life sciences will, in the future, be the way to address some of our world’s most critical challenges: energy, climate, food, health.
