The Science Coalition presented Congresswoman Nita Lowey with its Champion of Science Award in recognition of her strong commitment to funding the basic research that keeps the United States and the state of New York at the forefront of scientific and medical discovery and technological innovation. The award was presented jointly by officials from three Science Coalition universities, Columbia, NYU, and Pace, at an event at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York.

“I would like to thank Congresswoman Lowey for her leadership and ongoing support in Congress, in particular in the area of higher education research funding, she is a true Champion of Science,” said Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman. “Without her voice it would be a challenge for Pace students, who represent the great middle class of American education and the aspiring heart of America, to assume leadership roles that are essential to creating jobs, stimulating the economy and keeping America competitive.”
