We have been celebrating Dr. Lee Hood’s National Medal of Science, which he received during a White House ceremony on Feb. 1. While the medal honors Lee’s career as a visionary scientist, we would like to thank all the past and current collaborators who have contributed to the success of not only Lee but of ISB, too. ISB has always valued collaboration across disciplines as well as between institutions; team science is necessary to push boundaries and achieve breakthroughs. During an interview on KING 5 Morning News on Feb. 4, Lee said this about the medal: “It’s an enormously exciting opportunity the idea that your whole career has been awarded, the idea that the colleagues you’ve worked with for so long have been, in a sense, rewarded.”
