Bert O'Malley Awarded National Medal of Science

As you may recall, Dr. Bert O'Malley surfaced in the news a few months ago, linked to the Roger Clemens steroids probe. I voiced my opinion on the matter, but I figure I should give credit where credit is due. Dr. O'Malley was awarded the 2007 National Medal of Science, to be awarded by President Bush at the White House in a ceremony this month. The official award for O'Malley states, "For his pioneering work on the molecular mechanisms of steroid hormone action and hormone receptors and coactivators which has had a profound impact on our knowledge of steroid hormones in normal development and in diseases, including cancer." Regardless of my earlier views, clearly, a well-deserved honor.
