Edward Derrick became director of the AAAS Center of Science, Policy & Society Programs in July 2011 after serving as acting director for seven months. The Center for Science, Policy & Society Programs bridges the science and engineering community on one side, and policymakers and the interested public on the other. The programs address an array of topics in science and society, including the interplay of science with religion, law and human rights; they also connect scientists and policymakers through programs in science and government, including the S&T Policy Fellowship program. As acting director, Dr. Derrick oversees the programs, which combined have a staff of about 40 and an annual budget of over $20 million, and serves as a member of senior management at AAAS.
