Summary

Ten weeks after leaving the top job at the $4 billion National Cancer Institute (NCI) to start a new biomedical research institute, biologist Richard Klausner has jumped again, this time to help the government combat terrorism. He will serve as a liaison between the U.S. National Academies and the government's antiterrorism efforts while maintaining a lab at NCI. Klausner's surprise move means that the $100 million organization he was supposed to lead has folded before it even began.
