In “Family Matters to Science” we look at the degree to which elite scientists today feel they are living up to their image of the ideal scientist and the ways in which they try to integrate family life with their scientific work. We also explore the various ways that family life is important to science and the U.S. science infrastructure.

Keywords:   ideal scientist, family, work, linked institutions
