Google adds Princeton president to its board

CNET "Google has elected Princeton University President Shirley Tilghman to its board of directors, building on its efforts in science, the company announced Wednesday.
Tilghman, who is also a molecular biology professor at the university, participated in the cloning of the first mammalian gene as part of her postdoctoral studies at the National Institutes of Health.
Her appointment to the board may aid Google's work in tackling scientific problems. In 2002, the company tested a toolbar that acted like a supercomputer in an effort to figure out how genetic information is converted into proteins. "
