Every year, the San Diego chapter of ARCS (Advancing Science in America) salutes an individual for outstanding achievement in science. This year’s honoree was Richard C. Atkinson, president emeritus of the University of California and former chancellor of UCSD.

The organizatioin’s website notes his achievements as “scientist, educator, and passionate advocate for American science have earned him international recognition and countless honors, as well as election to the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine, the National Academy of Education, and the American Philosophical Society. His career reflects an extraordinary ability to combine interests and insights that span conventional disciplines and redefine traditional boundaries.”
