Serving Science and Society in the New Millenium: DOE’s Biological and Environmental Research Program Biological and Environmental Research Program Recognition Awards On the last day of the symposium, 13 scientists who have made significant contributions to the advancement and progress of the BER program were honored. In presenting the awards, Dr. Patrinos read the inscriptions. Dr. Mina Bissell, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the BER program in the area of molecular and cellular biology to understand how cell growth, differentiation, and survival are controlled in normal and cancerous breast cells. Dr. Charles DeLisi, Boston University In recognition of the seminal role you played while Associate Director of Health and Environmental Research in proposing and initiating the Department's, the nation's, and the world's Human Genome Program in 1986. Dr. Jay Edmonds, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the BER program for global climate change to understand the environmental and economic consequences of carbon dioxide emissions, and for developing innovative models to assess the energy impact on climate. Dr. Joanna Fowler, Brookhaven National Laboratory In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the BER program for medical applications to create new concepts in medical imaging, and to design, synthesize, and apply radio-tracers to the study of the human brain in health and disease. Dr. Lawrence Gates, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the department' s BER program for global climate change through the development of the methodology to inter-compare climate models to systematically ascertain and correct model biases and errors. Dr. Joe Gray, University of California, San Francisco In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the BER program in the area of health effects to develop molecular/cytogenetic tools, such as chromosome paints so valuable for clinical and research applications.

Serving Science and Society in the New Millenium: DOE’s Biological and Environmental Research Program Dr. Michael Huston, Oak Ridge National Laboratory In recognition of your sustained, outstanding research conducted in support fo the BER program for ecosystem functioning and response, by developing innovative concepts of the general patterns of biodiversity and how environmental change and human influences affect biodiversity. Dr. Michael Knotek, Argonne National Laboratory In recognition of your outstanding leadership in bringing to fruition the William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory and National Collaborative User Facility for providing innovative approaches to meet the needs of the department's environmental missions. Ms. Betty Mansfield, Oak Ridge National Laboratory To recognize you as founding and managing editor for the Human Genome News, and for outstanding success in communicating scientific information to the U.S. and international community about the Department's BER program. Dr. J. Craig Venter, The Institute for Genomic Research In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the Department's BER program for determining the first three complete microbial genome sequences, discovering and cataloging new human and microbial genese, and exemplifying the private sector's collaborative role in federal programs. Dr. Tuan Vo-Dinh, Oak Ridge National Laboratory In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the Department' s BER Program for instrumentation and measurement science to discover new concepts in analytical chemistry and to invent and transfer to the private sector technologies applicable to medical and environmental monitoring. Dr. Warren Washington, National Center for Atmospheric Research In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the BER program for climate research through the development and application of advanced coupled atmospheric, ocean, general circulation models to study the impacts of anthropogenic activities on future climate. Dr. Edward Westbrook, Argonne National Laboratory In recognition of your sustained outstanding research conducted in support of the Department's BER program for structural biology, to develop advanced detectors for crystallography, while providing leadership to established user facilities for structural molecular biology at the advanced photon source.
