Berg and Neureiter will be honored at a Capitol Hill ceremony and public reception on Wednesday, April 13, which will be held in B-338 Rayburn House Office Building from 5:30 7:30 p.m.

"I am very pleased that ACS is recognizing two scientists who have dedicated their talents to public service," ACS President Nancy B. Jackson, Ph.D., said. "Dr. Jeremy Berg is an effective advocate for basic research who has worked to increase the visibility of chemistry at NIH. His contributions will be felt for years to come, as he has focused on developing and motivating the next generation of scientists."

"Among his decades of service in industry and in foreign policy, Dr. Norman Neureiter has the distinction of serving as the first science and technology adviser to the Secretary of State, leading the U.S.'s international science and technology cooperation efforts under Secretaries Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell," said Jackson. "He has left a profound mark on both science and foreign policy so that ACS is particularly proud to be recognizing him in 2011 during this International Year of Chemistry."

The leaders will be recognized for their public service as follows:

Berg, director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has been an advocate for scientific research, research training, and programs designed to increase the diversity of the biomedical and behavioral research workforce.
