Public service chemistry

Jeremy Berg, director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Norman Neureiter, senior advisor to the Center for Science Diplomacy at the American Association for the Advancement of Science are to be the 2011 recipients of the American Chemical Society's Public Service Award for their vision and leadership in science and engineering policy. "I am very pleased that ACS is recognizing two scientists who have dedicated their talents to public service," ACS President Nancy Jackson said. "ACS created its Public Service Award to recognize the kind of leadership that Doctors Berg and Neureiter exemplify, and it is fitting that they will be joining the list of distinguished recipients," she adds.
