    NIH Funded Early Career Scientists Honored by Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers

    Date: September 11, 2012

    The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy selected 20 NIH-supported scientists for their 2011 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, or PECASE Awards.

    These outstanding early-career awardees were selected not only for their research achievements but also for their community service efforts through scientific leadership, public outreach and education. The PECASE award is the highest honor the U.S. government gives to scientists and engineers beginning independent careers.
