After the dedication of the new "Phase III" building at the St. Petersburg campus of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Florida Integrated Science Center (FISC) on March 28, 2008 (see article, this issue), USGS Deputy Director Robert Doyle addressed the local business community at the quarterly St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership luncheon held at the Hilton Hotel. Doyle emphasized the importance of the work being done by each member organization of the C.W. Bill Young Marine Science Complex and how important it is to continue to foster an integrated approach to scientific research. He highlighted how scientific work done by the USGS and the other members of the Marine Science Complex contributes to the community, not only through the research itself but also by stimulating economic growth in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas. Doyle also spoke about the importance of the open house held annually on the USGS FISC campus in St. Petersburg and the moral imperative we all share to foster the interest in science that is so vital to society and to creating young scientists of the future.
