Great Falls Tribune --- Dr. Leroy Hood of the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, who sits on the Scientific Advisory Committee at the McLoughlin Research Institute in Great Falls, is one of 12 researchers named by President Barack Obama as one of the recipients of the National Medal of Science award.
Leroy Hood, the man who transformed biology by leading the team that invented automated DNA sequencers, has picked up one of the highest honors a scientist can get in the United States—the National Medal of Science.
President Barack Obama announced today that he will give a National Medal of Science to Seattle biologist Dr. Leroy Hood, who is revered in the science community for his molecular immunology, biotechnology and genomics research.
Hood, president and co-founder of the Seattle-based Institute for Systems Biology, revolutionized biomedicine and forensic science when he and a team of other scientists discovered how to automate DNA sequencing in the 1980s. The research became an essential part of mapping the human genome years later.
