National Academy of Engineering... Check!

Posted by Angel Gonzalez at 2:34 PM

On Sunday, local science star Leroy Hood will get a rare feather on his cap: he will be inducted into the National Academy of Engineering - becoming one of seven people who belong to at least three of the National Academies.

Hood, who heads the Institute for Systems Biology on the north side of Lake Union, is also a member of the National Academy of Science and the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.

Hood gained fame in the field of biotech by helping invent the automated gene sequencer and other tools used in genetics. In 2000 he co-founded the ISB in Seattle, where computing science mixes with biology to seek new knowledge related to health care.

But Hood still needs to be invited to the National Research Council to complete his collection of all four national academies.
