2013 Wiley Prize to be awarded at Apr. 5 event
Date:3/29/2013

Hoboken, N.J. March 28, 2013 - Deborah E. Wiley, Chair of The Wiley Foundation, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa & JWb) will present the 2013 Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences to Dr. Michael Young, Rockefeller University, Dr. Jeffrey Hall, Brandeis University (Emeritus), and Dr. Michael Rosbash, Brandeis University on Friday April 5.

The ceremony will take place at Caspary Auditorium, The Rockefeller University, 1230 York Avenue, New York, New York at 4:00 p.m. After receiving the award the three men will each present a brief lecture relating to their discovery of the molecular mechanisms governing circadian rhythms. The lecture will be streaming live here.

Studies of the molecular basis for circadian rhythmicity began more than thirty years ago in the lab of Dr. Young at Rockefeller University and Drs. Hall and Rosbash at Brandeis. Over the past three decades, the work of the three men focused on the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster, with their research showing that the fly's circadian clocks are formed through the actions of a small group of genes.

These discoveries also apply to humans and other mammals, and could ultimately lead to the development of drugs to treat sleep disorders and jet lag, plus conditions associated with employees who work non-traditional shifts.

There is also evidence that the effectiveness of many drugs (including chemotherapeutics), our ability to fight infection, our ability to repair damaged tissues, and the incidence of certain forms of cancer depend on the proper working of circadian clocks. The Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences recognizes a specific contribution or series of contributions that demonstrate significant leadership in the development of research concepts or their clinical application. Particular emphasis is placed on research that champions novel approaches and challenges accepted thinking in the biomedical sciences.

The Wiley Foundation and the Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences were established in 2001.
