Robert P. Mikulak, U.S. Ambassador to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, received the MRIGlobal Board of Directors and Trustees 2014 Citation Award on October 14.

Ambassador Mikulak has dedicated more than 40 years of personal and professional leadership to the global reduction and prohibition of chemical and biological weapons.  The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which is located in The Hague, Netherlands, received the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize for its "extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons."

"At MRIGlobal, we have been privileged to contribute research that supports our Nation's work to eliminate the threat of chemical weapons," said Thomas M. Sack, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer.

"We strongly support a goal of nonproliferation of chemical and biological weapons and we recognize Ambassador Mikulak's life-long commitment and leadership toward an international policy to rid the world of chemical weapons."
