Meet the 48 members of the White House scientific integrity task force

Listen

Members of the White House's scientific integrity task force include dozens of people from federal government departments, including HHS, as well as leaders from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy launched its scientific task force in May. Government officials said the 48-member panel will review federal scientific integrity policies to ensure policymaking is based on scientific and technological information, data and evidence, and that politics does not interfere in the work of federal scientists or influence scientific findings.
