In December 2012, CASIS named its original Board members, comprising seven distinguished scientists and/or academic administrators. The new members bring expertise and background in communication of science to the public, science especially well-suited to the ISS platform, or technology transfer and entrepreneurship. The latter are expected to leverage their background in commercialization to expand the user-base of the National Laboratory.
