Beckman's Bright Future

I hope you caught the great News-Gazette article last week about Nadya Mason, the soon-to-become leader of the Beckman Institute. When Jeff Moore told me that he would be stepping down after five transformational years as Beckman Director, I had several conversations with members of the Illinois research community about the qualities that the next director should have. We were looking for an exceptional scholar, a visionary leader, and an advocate for creating opportunities for different perspectives in STEM.
