President Stanley Offers Expert Views in “Inside Higher Ed” Article

Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD is extensively quoted in a recent Inside Higher Ed roundup of security issues facing academic institutions. The story summarizes universities’ efforts to cope with escalating concerns about theft of sensitive academic research by foreign competitors.

“There’s a tension that always exists,” President Stanley told the publication. “I chaired the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity for eight years; it taught me a lot. The security agencies really spend a lot of time thinking about how to protect assets. That’s what they do, and they do very well.”

“Of course, we in science think a lot about how you generate new knowledge and how you disseminate as broadly as possible so other people can push the field further,” Stanley said. “Those two are in fundamental conflict. Finding middle ground sometimes is difficult.”
