ARS names new hall of fame inductees ...
Knowles, who heads the ARS Animal Disease Research Unit in Pullman, Wash., was recognized for his scientific leadership on multiple infectious animal diseases that affect national and global food security. Cundiff developed internationally recognized programs of excellence in beef genetics while working with multi-disciplinary researchers at the ARS Roman L. Hruska U.S. Meat Animal Research Center in Clay Center, Neb. Vogel, a plant geneticist and research leader of the ARS Grain, Forage and Bioenergy Research Unit in Lincoln, Neb., began researching perennial grasses for bioenergy when little was known about their genetics and agronomic traits. Since then, his innovative and strategic research has led to the development of switchgrass, a previously obscure prairie grass, as a bioenergy crop.
ARS established its Science Hall of Fame in 1986 to recognize agency researchers for their outstanding lifelong achievements in agricultural sciences and technology. Nominees must be retired or eligible to retire to receive the award.
