Lerner's science background in physics and molecular biology, wide global experience, and deep familiarity with current science and technology challenges make him a sought-after strategic consultant and "Tiger team/Red team" tactical problem solver for government and private organizations facing challenging developmental, investment, operational, or security issues related to biotechnology; energy resource management, alternative energy development; and prevention, mitigation, and crisis response related to radiologic, chemical, biologic, and other public health threats." — National Press Club profile
