Among the 12 recipients of the 2012 National Medal of Science honored by President Barack Obama was Leroy (Lee) Hood, MD, PhD, president and cofounder of the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, Washington. A White House ceremony was held February 1.
On the occasion of Systems Biology president Dr. Leroy Hood being awarded a National Medal of Science from President Obama at a ceremony in the White House, Sapphire Energy’s CEO and Chairman Cynthia ‘CJ’ Warner made the following statement:
Targeted sensitive SRM proteomics developed in collaboration between ISB and ETH Zurich has enabled for the first time quantitative proteomic measurements to provide Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) to be analyzed at the protein level between large sets of genetically diverse populations enabling the determination of natural genetic variation and epistatic interactions between loci affecting protein levels of discrete molecular functions and pathways.
Seattle biomedical pioneer Dr. Leroy Hood, who is currently president of the Institute for Systems Biology, has been selected to receive the National Science Medal. He and other recipients will receive their awards at a White House ceremony early next year. The news came out late Friday, just before many of us headed off for a holiday weekend.
