Professor Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar spoke with The Stanford Daily's IIeana Najarro on how a new $2.45 million grant to CISAC will be used and what it could mean for the future of nuclear security.

Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) received a $2.45 million grant for a span of four years from The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to train future specialists in nuclear security and support ongoing projects, including scientific cooperation with China.

Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, law professor and CISAC co-director, said that the institute is lucky to have continued support from the MacArthur Foundation, and that such support is a testament to the institute’s significant and unique contributions.

“Historically, the MacArthur foundation has recognized CISAC as one of the most unique places in the country, bringing together scientists and social scientists and different policy professionals to work on national security problems,” Cuéllar said.
