Brian Bidlingmeyer Honored by Chemical Society
The American Chemical Society (ACS) has named Brian Bidlingmeyer, who resides in Frazer, of Agilent Technologies, Inc. in Philadelphia to the 2012 class of ACS Fellows, a prestigious honor bestowed upon 96 distinguished scientists who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to ACS, the world’s largest scientific society. They represent 23 technical divisions and 52 local sections and reflect a wide range of disciplines and geographic locations.
“These chemists hold the future to our country, to our way of life and to the legacy we will leave for the next generation,” said ACS President Bassam Z. Shakhashiri, Ph.D. “Whether it’s producing renewable fuels, finding cures for afflictions such as diabetes, cancer, AIDS and Alzheimer’s disease or ensuring safe drinking water, these Fellows are scientific leaders, improving our lives through the transforming power of chemistry.”
The 2012 Fellows were recognized at an induction ceremony during the Society’s 244th National Meeting & Exposition in Philadelphia, where each Fellow will receive a lapel pin and a certificate.
The ACS Fellows Program was created by the ACS Board of Directors in December 2008 “to recognize members of ACS for outstanding achievements in and contributions to Science, the Profession and the Society.” Fellows come from academe, industry and government.
