Betsey Arledge, Julia Cort and Robert Krulwich of WGBH/NOVA won for their two-hour program, "Cracking the Code of Life" (17 April 2001). They followed the race to decode the human genome between the Human Genome Project and Celera Genomics. The producers won the award for portraying the impact of science on society and keeping a well-exposed topic stimulating through an exciting mix of interviews, sharp writing, and graphics.

Since the inception of the awards program in 1945, more than 300 individuals have been honored for their significant achievements in the field of science reporting. The Whitaker Foundation, which supports research and training in biomedical engineering, has sponsored the AAAS Science Journalism Awards since 1995. The 2001 awards will be presented by Tim Radford of The Guardian on 15 February 2002 at the Prudential Center, Top of the Hub, during the AAAS Annual Meeting.

Independent screening and judging committees comprised of scientists and science journalists selected the winning entries based on their scientific accuracy, initiative, originality, clarity, and value in fostering a better public understanding of science.
