Leroy Edward Hood
Dr. Hood conceived and realized the use of automated instruments in molecular biology and molecular genetics, fields which had hitherto depended primarily on the technical prowess of scientists. Through such innovations, he helped complete the mapping of the human genome, an extraordinary contribution to the advancement of life science and one that had been predicted to take nearly a century to accomplish.
