Winners of Best Scientist Awards Announced

Abstract:
Kwon Wook-hyeon, professor of electrical engineering, and Lim Ji-soon, professor of physics, at Seoul National University, Choi Jin-ho, professor of chemistry at Ewha Woman's University, and Seo Jin-seok, professor of medicine at Yonsei University, have been selected as the winners of the 2007 Most Outstanding Korean Scientist and Engineer Awards.

The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies announced Thursday the four prize winners of the presidential awards who will all receive 300 million won ($315,000).

Lim will receive the award in recognition of achieving a breakthrough in research on carbon nanotube and hydrogen storage materials by pioneering the new area of "Computational Solid State Physics," a formula to calculate the total energy of solids.
