Yesterday, President Obama welcomed more than 100 leading scientists and engineers from across the country (and around the world!) to thank them for their work on some of the most challenging and complex issues in science and technology. These individuals, including Assistant Professor in the Horticulture Section Kenong Xu, are the latest recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). They spent two days in Washington, D.C., meeting with Administration leaders and sharing the insights of their work.

During his visit with these awardees, President Obama congratulated them on their achievements and urged them to continue to lead the way in driving discovery and innovation. He also noted that the recipients, all of whom are either employed or funded by the Federal government, underscored the importance of our Nation’s investments in research and development.

Congratulations Kenong!
