NCPTT’s Mary Striegel participated in a National Science Foundation/Andrew Mellon Foundation workshop held to examine and improve the state of science used to study, preserve and protect cultural patrimony.

Forty participants representing university, museum and government research agencies met in Arlington, Va. July 6-7, 2009, to identify areas where new research in basic science can provide a foundation for significant improvements in understanding the way art and artifacts were created and how best to preserve them.

The opening reception was held at the Freer Gallery of Art with Dr. Richard Ernst, Nobel laureate, as the keynote speaker.
