President reappoints Cigarroa to national committee
Congress created the National Medal of Science in 1959 as a Presidential Award to be given to individuals "deserving of special recognition by reason of their outstanding contributions to knowledge in the physical, biological, mathematical or engineering sciences." In 1980 the award was expanded to include the social and behavioral sciences.
The president appoints 12 of the nationís most prominent leaders in the
fields of research, science and engineering to evaluate award nominees.
