The American Chemical Society (ACS) named Brian Bidlingmeyer of Agilent Technologies, Inc. (Santa Clara, California) and a member of LCGC’s editorial advisory board 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.

“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, PhD. “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 and Exposition in Philadelphia, where each Fellow received 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 are chosen from academe, industry, and government.
