"The process of science is a marvelous human invention. Starting with a few examples from my own career - first as a scientist studying cells and later as the president of the US National Academy of Sciences - I will try to explain how this community-based system has produced such powerful advances in our understanding of the world, as well as how such advances are harnessed to bring immense benefit to humanity. I will end with some promising strategies for spreading science and scientific values much more widely throughout society - including the idea of 'science for all' and how that applies to even the poorest nations."
Reception to follow.
