A video released in February, the first in a new series called “ETHOS”—Ethics Throughout Ohio State—features CFAES soil scientist Rattan Lal. You can watch it below. The series will highlight the “ethical motivations and challenges that underlie much of the cutting-edge research being done at Ohio State,” according to the video’s YouTube description. The idea is to show “how scholars across many disciplines are helping to improve the life of our community.” Ohio State’s Center for Ethics and Human Values is the producer.
Lal is Distinguished University Professor of Soil Science in CFAES’ School of Environment and Natural Resources. He was recently announced as a winner of the Japan Prize, considered one of the most prestigious honors in science and technology, and will receive it in a ceremony on April 8 in Tokyo.
