“Matt Scott is a great choice to lead the Carnegie Institution for Science. As a world-class biologist and Chair of Stanford’s Bio-X initiative, Matt has a deep understanding of what leading-edge, interdisciplinary science requires.
 
He also has boundless curiosity about the world that is matched by seemingly unlimited energy. These qualities are a great fit with the unique and diverse missions and potential of Carnegie’s departments. I am looking forward to welcoming Matt to Washington where he will find many like-minded colleagues who are working to advance science and science education.”
