University of Rochester President Joel Seligman presented Congresswoman Louise Slaughter with an award Monday morning.
Slaughter received the Champion of Science Award for her commitment to funding basic scientific research.
The award is given out to members of Congress who support basic scientific research at universities and national labs.
The Coalition is acknowledging Slaughter for her fight to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense and Department of Energy Office of Science.
"With Representative Louise Slaughter, you have as appropriate a recipient as one could imagine," Seligman said. "She is someone who has made her career focused impart upon science, health care and economic development."
Congresswoman Slaughter joins more than 60 current and former members of Congress who have received the award since its establishment in 1999.
