Edward Derrick, Ph.D.
Chief Program Director
Center of Science, Policy, and Society Programs
Since July, 2011, Edward G. Derrick, Ph.D., has been Chief Program Director of the AAAS Center of Science, Policy, and Society Programs. The programs in the Center connect the science and engineering community with policy makers and the interested public on an array of topics. These include the interplay of science with religion, law and human rights; they connect scientists and policy makers through programs in science and government, including the S&T Policy Fellowship program; and they address improvement in the conduct of science through activities promoting responsible conduct of science and through a peer review service. He holds the Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, with a dissertation in theoretical particle physics, and the B.S. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with an undergraduate thesis in biophysics.

The KACST-AAAS collaboration dates to 2008, said former program Director Edward Derrick, who now oversees it as head of the association's Center of Science, Policy and Society Programs. A former high-ranking University of Michigan administrator knew of AAAS's work in the state; he also had close ties with Saudi science leaders who were beginning to implement their plan. He helped arrange a meeting at AAAS headquarters in Washington, D.C.
"They had decided on making these investments in research projects," Derrick recalled.
Generally, Derrick said, at least three reviewers assess each proposal; about 300 scholars we recruited to evaluate the round of proposals received from KACST late last year. (The AAAS Technology Services division developed a Web site that allows the reviewers to log in securely and conduct reviews.)
The project has brought Derrick and current project Director Mark Milutinovich into close engagement not only with KACST, but with a number of Saudi universities and research centers.
While many of the early proposals were worthy of funding, Derrick said, proposals now are increasingly stronger and more sophisticated.
Derrick and a hand-picked team of experts visited the kingdom to assess current facilities and future plans, with an eye toward helping the kingdom achieve those goals.
