17 individuals in U.S. recognized for major contributions to science
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) will honor 17 individuals with awards in recognition of their extraordinary scientific achievements in a wide range of fields spanning the physical, biological, and social sciences. Among them is Larry R. Squire, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry, Neurosciences, and Psychology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, and research career scientist at VA Medical Center, San Diego.
The prize of $10,000, presented this year in the field of neuroscience, recognizes excellence in scientific reviewing. The award is supported by Annual Reviews, the Institute for Scientific Information, and The Scientist in honor of J. Murray Luck.
Squire and 16 other NAS award recipients will be honored in a ceremony on Monday, April 30, during the National Academy of Sciences’ 149th annual meeting.
The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit institution that was established under a congressional charter signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. It recognizes achievement in science by election to membership, and – along with the National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council – provides science, technology, and health policy advice to the federal government and other organizations.
