Chartered by the State of Vermont in 1995, VASE has as its mission "to recognize outstanding achievement and contributions in the broadly defined areas of science and/or engineering, to foster a deeper understanding and promote discourse on scientific and technical matters among the citizens of the State of Vermont, and to provide expert and impartial technical advice to the people and the government of the State of Vermont." VASE administers a slate of grants and awards to foster science and technical fields in the Green Mountain State.

The VASE Annual Meeting featured a keynote address by Vermont Commissioner of Health and Larner Professor of Medicine Mark Levine, M.D., on “The Application (and Misapplication) of Science, Epidemiologic Data, Public Health Practices, and Health Policy during the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

Page, Carr and Francklyn join approximately 60 members of Vermont's community of scientists and engineers in the Academy. Learn more about the 2020 VASE inductees on the VASE website.
