Dr. Francesca Grifo will be the new scientific integrity official at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The position is responsible for carrying out the agency’s scientific integrity policy and chairing EPA’s scientific integrity committee.
Dr. Grifo previously worked at the Union of Concerned Scientists, where she led the organization’s efforts to strengthen federal agencies’ scientific integrity policies.
“Science is, and continues, to be the backbone of this agency and the integrity of our science is central to the identity and credibility of our work,” said Gina McCarthy, administrator of EPA. “Dr. Grifo brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to EPA that will help continue our work to implement the agency’s scientific integrity policy.”
