Darlene Solomon, Agilent Technologies’ senior vice president and chief technology officer, has been elected to the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE).
Solomon was elected for her “leadership in the development of innovative nucleic-acid and microfluidic products,” the academy said. These are foundational innovations, developed by scientists and engineers at Agilent Laboratories, that contribute to Agilent products at the leading edge of biomolecular research – especially toward the advancement of precision medicine.
NAE is an independent, non-profit institution that advises the federal government on issues related to engineering and technology. Founded in 1964, it elects as members those who have made outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education.
“NAE is the world’s pre-eminent society of engineers, and becoming a member selected by one’s peers is a very special recognition of contribution,” Solomon said. “I am deeply honored to be part of this distinguished academy. I am also grateful to Agilent for its vision that includes the strength of pairing science and engineering principles in ways that help improve lives.”
Agilent CEO Mike McMullen offered his congratulations, praising Solomon as “an excellent choice” for NAE membership. “She is a true visionary who understands the power of science built on engineering fundamentals,” he said.
