Decorated UH professor to help choose nation's top scientists

One of the nations most renowned researchers and a University of Houston professor will help decide which of his colleagues across the country will receive the nations highest award for science.

The White House has appointed Paul Ching-Wu Chu, a physics professor and the T.L.L. Temple Chair of Science, to be among 12 distinguished scientists who will evaluate nominees for the National Medal of Science. Chu, who in 1990 was named Best Researcher in the United States by U.S. News and World Report magazine, will serve on the Presidents Committee on the National Medal of Science through 2009. He received the award in 1988 for his work on high temperature superconductivity, making him the only UH professor to earn the honor.

The medal represents a token, but significant, gesture in our national commitment to science, Chu said.
