A Farewell from Bob Kahn
Dr. Robert L. Kahn relished the exchange of ideas. He enjoyed designing studies which targeted practical problems, and most of all analyzing and considering how best to apply the findings. He was a strong supporter of young people, junior scientists, women and minority scholars. He was committed to social justice and backed some of the toughest early decisions in the field. Thank you for celebrating his career and contributions with us.
ISR consists of five separate but interdependent research centers, each with a particular focus and capabilities.
