An article in the Washington Post, prepared in conjunction with the Partnership for Public Service, calls Jeffrey Schloss the "unsung hero" of the Human Genome Project. Schloss was the director for technology development coordination for the project and encouraged the participants to create faster and cheaper methods. "He was instrumental in setting the vision for the development of these technologies and inspired a lot of people to think boldly and to focus on novel approaches to solve problems and technology issues that are 10 years down the road," Francis Collins says.
