(Washington, DC)  --  A researcher for the University of Washington is one of the latest recipients of the nation's highest recognition for scientific achievement.  Dr. Mary-Claire King, who discovered the gene linked to increased breast-cancer risk, received the National Medal of Technology and Innovation yesterday from President Obama.  In addition to discovering the gene, King developed DNA strategies now used in forensic anthropology and human-rights prosecutions around the world.  King also received an Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation Award in 2014 for her DNA-research discoveries.
