Academy of Science-St. Louis announces recipients of Outstanding St. Louis Scientist Awards
Date:1/13/2011

ST. LOUIS, JANUARY 12, 2011: The 17th annual Academy of Science-St. Awards dinner, honoring top scientists and engineers from the St. Louis region, will be held at the Chase Park Plaza on April 13, 2011.

The academy's Peter H. Raven Lifetime Award recognizes local scientists with a distinguished career in science, engineering or technology. The 2011 prize goes to Marcus E. Raichle, MD, Professor of Radiology, Neurology, Neurobiology, BioMedical Engineering and Psychology at the Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Raichle has an exceptional body of leading-edge research work in Human cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging.

Dr. Raichle has profoundly influenced biomedical science by discovering and then creatively applying methods of image human brain function. His PET studies in the late 1980's and early 1990's on language, attention and memory were the turning point for the field of human cognitive neuroscience.

Over the past three decades, Raichle and his colleagues have pioneered a revolution in brain science using noninvasive neuroimaging methods to study human brain function. His specific contributions include advances in the methodology of imaging and groundbreaking work in elucidating cognitive aspects of human brain function. The PET experiments of Raichle and his colleagues on the manner in which the brain processes single words is among the most emulated and cited studies in the functional neuroimaging literature. His impact is evident in myriad fields of study, including memory, emotion, personality differences, depression, anxiety and blindness.

The Science Leadership Award honors an individual or organization that has played an important leadership role in the development of science and scientists in the region. This year's honorees are Emerson and Timothy Eberlein, MD, Director of the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

An innovative technology leader, St. Louis-based E
