UNC researcher to receive highest US honor for early career science professionals
Date:9/29/2011

CHAPEL HILL During a White House ceremony next month, Thomas L. Kash, PhD, assistant professor in the department of pharmacology and the UNC Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine will receive the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).

This is the highest honor given by the United States government to science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers.

The award recognizes the promise Kash has demonstrated as a scientist and his research program on the effects of alcohol on neural circuits in the brain. The research is supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

The winners, who will be presented with their awards by the President at a White House ceremony in October, receive research grants of up to five years to further studies that support critical government missions. This year, President Obama named 94 researchers as recipients of the award.

"It is inspiring to see the innovative work being done by these scientists and engineers as they ramp up their careerscareers that I know will be not only personally rewarding but also invaluable to the Nation," President Obama said. "That so many of them are also devoting time to mentoring and other forms of community service speaks volumes about their potential for leadership, not only as scientists but as model citizens."

The awards, established by President Clinton in 1996, are coordinated by the Office of Science and Technology Policy within the Executive Office of the President. Awardees are selected for their pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their commitment to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, or community outreach.

Sixteen Federal departments and agencies join together annually to nominate candidates for the PECASE award.
