Epidemiologist Michael Osterholm is director of the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP).  He is also a Regents Professor at the University of Minnesota.

On June 11, Dr. Osterholm was one of five scientists chosen by the U. S. Department of State to serve as a science envoy, a year-long appointment.

The other four scientists are chemical engineer Robert Langer (MIT), bioengineer Rebecca Richards-Kortum (Rice University), environmental engineer James Schauer (University of Wisconsin) and NASA Administrator (retired) Charles Bolden.

There is a short interview with Professor Osterholm in Science by Jon Cohen which includes a link to the science envoy program.

Congratulations, Dr. Osterholm.
