NCSE is pleased to congratulate Richard E. Lenski of Michigan State University on receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society for the Study of Evolution. The award, according to SSE, "was created to recognize individuals who have made substantial contributions to the study of evolution, who have demonstrated outstanding mentorship of trainees, and/or who have provided noteworthy service to the evolution community."

Lenski was previously the recipient of NCSE’s Friend of Darwin award in 2017. Alluding to his famous E. coli Long-Term Experimental Evolution Project — which, started in 1988, is the longest continuous experiment on evolution — NCSE's executive director Ann Reid remarked, "it would be hard to think of anybody who has done as much to show that evolution is among the experimental sciences than Rich Lenski."
