Brookhaven chemist Jacob Hooker receives Presidential Early Career Award
Date:11/8/2010

UPTON, NY - Jacob Hooker, an assistant chemist at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory and Director of Radiochemistry at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, has been named by President Obama as a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.

Hooker, who has worked to develop new kinds of chemicals used in biomedical imaging (see links below), was among 85 scientists and engineers supported by 10 federal departments and agencies, to receive the award this year. Hooker is among 13 awardees supported by DOE. Recipients are recognized both as leading research at the frontiers of their field and serving their community through outreach and education.

"Science and technology have long been at the core of America's economic strength and global leadership," President Obama said. "I am confident that these individuals, who have shown such tremendous promise so early in their careers, will go on to make breakthroughs and discoveries that will continue to move our nation forward in the years ahead."

"These gifted young scientists and engineers represent the best in our country," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "The awards recognize ingenuity, dedication, diligence and talent. I congratulate the 2009 PECASE awardees and wish them continued success towards new discoveries and advances in science, energy research, and national security."

Each Presidential Award winner received a citation, plaque, and continued funding from their agency for up to five years, provided by the DOE's Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration, depending on the field of research.

"It's an amazing honor and somewhat unbelievable to me at this stage in my career," Hooker said upon hearing of the award. "That I could be recognized is largely a result of the radiotracer and biomedical imaging program at Brookhaven (
