Dr. Cora Marrett, the deputy director of the National Science Foundation, has announced her retirement effective 24 August. Marrett first joined the agency in 1992 as head of the Social and Behavioral Sciences Directorate. Since 2007, she has served as deputy director and two turns as acting director. Dr. Marrett plans to return to Wisconsin, where her family lives.
“I cannot think of anyone who’s done a better job of protecting the integrity of the agency and retaining the trust of the scientific community. And that trust is essential for the NSF to do its job,” said Neal Lane, former director of the National Science Foundation.
