Stony Brook University President Dr. Samuel Stanley has been appointed chair of the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity, a group of 25 experts who advise health and life science experts at the national level, making recommendations for federal conducted biological research.

"Dr. Stanley brings tremendous experience to the position, both as an institutional leader, and as a nationally respected scientist," said Dr. Amy Patterson, director of the National Institutes of Health's Office of Science Policy, which manages the board. "He is also known for his thoughtful, statesman-like leadership and even-handed approach to tackling complex issues — characteristics that will serve him well as he takes the helm of the NSABB. The NIH is grateful to Dr. Stanley for taking on this important commitment."

As one of the top-funded biomedical and infectious disease researchers in the country during his tenure at Washington University in St. Louis, and during the past three years as president of SBU, Dr. Stanley has on a number of occasions been invited to sit on national advisory boards, including a recently-concluded four-year appointment to the NIH National Advisory Allergy and Infectious Diseases Council.

In 2006, he was invited to participate in a National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity roundtable to provide expert advice on developing criteria to define dual use research. From 2008 to 2010, he was a member of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Emerging Technology and Research Advisory Committee. In 2011 he was invited to serve on the National Security Higher Education Advisory Board.
