President Obama today (Oct. 3) announced a new group of recipients of the National Medal of Science and National Medal of Technology and Innovation--the nation's highest honors for achievement and leadership in advancing the fields of science and technology. The honorees will receive their medals at a White House ceremony later this year.
Nobel laureate Mario J. Molina, Ph.D., a 42-year member of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society, is among 16 individuals named by President Obama to receive the nation’s highest civilian honor — the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
