Prestigious 2004 AAAS Philip Hauge Abelson Prize honors Maxine Singer

17 FEBRUARY-For her countless roles in service to science and its potential for improving human welfare, AAAS, the world's largest general scientific society, today named Maxine Frank Singer, President Emeritus of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, to receive the prestigious 2004 AAAS Philip Hauge Abelson Prize.
