Dasu, Sridhara [2012]
University of Wisconsin, Madison
Citation: For leadership in understanding the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking in proton-proton collisions, contributions to studies of flavor-changing neutral current electro-weak decays of the B-meson, and innovation in triggering, data acquisition and computing in particle physics experiments

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
Citation: For his leadership on many levels of the CDF experiment including the construction and commissioning of the intermediate silicon detector (ISL) effort, serving as physics coordinator as well as his many physics contributions to the characterization of the top quark and search for new physics in the B_s channel


Incandela, Joseph [2012]
CERN
Citation: For distinguished contributions to our understanding of vector bosons, the observation and studies of the properties of the top quark, and searches for new physics at the LHC as well as leadership in the design and construction of new silicon tracking detectors that enabled many important new results at the Tevatron and the LHC
