WASHINGTON (WKOW/AP) -- President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris introduce key members of their science team Saturday, in Wilmington, Delaware.

President-elect Joe Biden says “science will always be at the forefront of my administration,” and he’s elevating the post of science adviser to Cabinet level, a White House first.

He says the scientists “will ensure everything we do is grounded in science, facts and the truth.”

A pioneer in mapping the human genome — the “book of life” — is in line to be director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy and adviser on science.

Biden also is retaining the director of the National Institutes of Health.
