Peter Emanuel, a scientist at the Army's Edgewood Chemical Biological Center, has been named one of the U.S. Jaycees' 10 Outstanding Young Americans for this year.

Emanuel was recognized by the Jaycees for his work in technologies to counter biological weapons.

At the Edgewood center, Emanuel has focused on devices for biological sampling and analysis.

Among his achievements are development of the BiSKit, a biological sampling kit that is easier for personnel dressed in protective garments to use, and a robotic system for detecting the presence of biological agents in samples.
