Before he was provost at Washington University where he holds appointments in both chemistry and medicine.  https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.abq8460 It ain’t over ’til it’s over   The Biden administration is sheepishly waving a checkered flag on the pandemic.   h ttps://www.science.org/doi/full/10.1126/science.adf3072 Remember, do no harm? When the advocacy group America’s Frontline Doctors appeared on the steps of the United States Supreme Court in 2020, falsely stating that hydroxychloroquine was a cure for COVID-19, their pronouncement was virally shared by right-wing media and soundly debunked by medical academicians.    https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.adg2577 Hard, not easy Science’s Breakthrough of the Year is the successful launch and deployment of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).   https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.abo3934 Science needs affirmative action As science struggles to correct systemic racism in the laboratory and throughout academia in the United States, external forces press on, making it even more difficult to achieve equity on all fronts—including among scientists. The latest example is the decision by the US Supreme Court to hear cases brought against Harvard University and the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill challenging their right to use race as a factor in undergraduate admissions.
