The National Institute of General Medical Sciences Director Jeremy Berg was awarded the American Chemical Society's 2011 Public Service Award. "I am very pleased that ACS is recognizing such an effective advocate for basic research who has worked to increase the visibility of chemistry at NIH," says Nancy Jackson, the ACS president, in an NIH press release. "Dr. Berg's contributions will be felt for years to come, as he has focused on developing and motivating the next generation of scientists." He shares the award with Norman Neureiter, who directs the Center for Science, Technology, and Security Policy at the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Berg announced in December that he will be leaving his position at NIGMS at the end of June.
Thanks for the Service
