President Obama honors MU researcher with National Medal of Science
Date:12/28/2012

President Barack Obama named University of Missouri researcher M. Frederick Hawthorne as recipient of the National Medal of Science, the highest honor bestowed by the country to scientists. Hawthorne is the director of the International Institute of Nano and Molecular Medicine at the University of Missouri, as well as Curators' Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Radiology.

"I am proud to honor these inspiring American innovators," President Obama said in a news release. "They represent the ingenuity and imagination that has long made this Nation greatand they remind us of the enormous impact a few good ideas can have when these creative qualities are unleashed in an entrepreneurial environment."

Hawthorne was named a National Medal of Science recipient because of his work on the chemical element, boron. He developed the use of a technique known as Boron Neuron Capture Therapy, which is used in experimental treatments for cancer, arthritis and other diseases. His work with boron also has been used to fight heart disease and Alzheimer's. He pioneered the use of "boron cages," chemical structures that can be attached to other compounds and thereby change their physical properties.

"When Dr. Hawthorne came to MU in 2006, I was sure that he would advance MU's national leadership in nanomedicine and cancer research while providing break-through technology and medical solutions for the world," MU Chancellor Brady Deaton said. "This acknowledgement by President Obama of Dr. Hawthorne's work is especially gratifying and well deserved."

MU's International Institute of Nano and Molecular Medicine (I2NM2) was created largely to facilitate Hawthorne's research. Besides studies on boron, I2NM2 focuses on applications of nanotechnology in medicine, engineering microscopic motors, inventing methods to store hydrogen fuel and designing materials to store energy. Hawthorne came to MU in 2006 because the university provided a rare mix of
