In what could be a prelude to warmer scientific relations between the United States and Iran, a delegation of five high-ranking Iranian scientists spent 5 days in Washington last week meeting with several nongovernmental scientific organizations. It was the first such visit since the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the shah. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences and Engineering and the Institute of Medicine, which co-hosted the visit, are hoping to send a delegation to Iran next spring to flesh out some of the ideas raised during a daylong session at the academy.
