Chemists at four pharmaceutical companies named Heroes for treating childhood conditions

Seventeen research chemists from four companies have been named Heroes of Chemistry by the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, for developing breakthrough treatments for childhood diseases and ailments.

Teams from Abbott Laboratories, Merck Research Laboratories, Pfizer Inc, and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals are being honored by the ACS for improving children's health and wellness by creating commercial products based on chemistry.

The teams will be honored as Heroes of Chemistry at the American Chemical Society's 226th national meeting in New York City on Sept. 7. This year's Heroes ceremony will recognize industrial chemists and chemical engineers who are improving children's health and wellness by creating commercial products based on chemistry.

"The broad range of invaluable products that our 2003 Heroes of Chemistry have developed and commercialized has dramatically advanced the health, well-being and lifestyles of children around the world," said ACS President Elsa Reichmanis, Ph.D. "The chemical advances made by the honorees serve as testimonials to the valuable role chemists and chemical engineers play in improving lives. It is with pride that the ACS recognizes them as Heroes of Chemistry."

The Heroes of Chemistry program will be held in conjunction with a celebration for the 80th anniversary of Chemical & Engineering News, the society's newsmagazine. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., director of the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University, will be the keynote speaker at the joint event. Carson has gained worldwide recognition as the principal surgeon in the separation of the conjoined Binder twins in Germany and, most recently, for his role in the separation of the Bijani twins from Iran.

The Heroes program, started in 1996 by the ACS, honors industrial chemists and chemical engineers who create commercially successful products that improve the quality of life. Each
