Obama names U-M professor to science award panel
University of Michigan mathematician named to committee that picks science award winners
Michigan U.S. Rep. John Dingell says the White House has nominated a University of Michigan professor to a panel that selects the winner of the National Medal of Science.
The Dearborn Democrat said Tuesday that President Barack Obama picked mathematician Hyman Bass for the President's Committee on the National Medal of Science. Bass won the medal in 2006.
The University of Michigan's website says that Bass's publications "cover broad areas of algebra with connections to geometry, topology, and number theory."
