For the past half-century, the U.S. Department of Energy's Biological and Environmental Research (BER) Program has crossed traditional research boundaries to seek revolutionary solutions in the areas of health, molecular nuclear medicine, genome, global environmental change, and bioremediation. Communicating the research that emerges from these areas is a critical component to expanding the base of scientific knowledge that will later serve science and society.|

Exceptional Service Awards -- At a symposium held May 21-22, 1997, at the National Academy of Sciences, the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Biological and Environmental Research (OBER) celebrated the legacy and promise of 50 years of achievements. On the last day of the symposium, 13 individuals were presented with Exceptional Service Awards as exemplars of the quality of effort and diversity of issues, disciplines, and institutional sectors encompassed by OBER's Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program. The awardees and their achievements are honored in this booklet.
