2 new Golden Goose Awards announced
Date:9/12/2013

ossible the genomics revolution. These developments have led to extraordinary medical advances in recent decades and promise many more.

The newly announced awardees, or their designees, will receive their awards at the second annual Golden Goose Awards ceremony in Washington, DC, on September 19. They will be joined by Dr. John Eng, whose Golden Goose Award was announced earlier this year. Dr. Eng is being honored for his work with Gila monster venom that led to an important new treatment for diabetes that helps to prevent the onset of complications such as blindness and kidney failure.

Following recent conversations between the Golden Goose Award organizing committee and the Wallace Coulter Foundation, the Foundation decided to decline the Golden Goose Award for Wallace Coulter that was announced earlier this year. The committee agreed to the request. While there can be no doubt as to the extraordinary achievements of Mr. Coulter, who discovered the Coulter Principle and invented the Coulter Counter, the Foundation determined that it could not be certain that federal funding was involved in the discovery of the Coulter Principle, which was the basis for the award.
