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

D, Member and Principal Investigator, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.

Duane Grandgenett is recognized as "the Father of Integrase". He was the first to discover that retroviruses encode a protein responsible for integration of the viral DNA genome into cell DNA. This discovery has now led to the better treatment of thousands with HIV/AIDS by a new drug directed against the integrase with few side effects and new hope for the 33 million patients worldwide. That said, Dr. Grandgenett regards educating young scientist and inspiring students as among his greatest contributions to his field. He has mentored postdoctoral fellows, graduate and medical students, undergraduates and high school students in his laboratory. For a decade he served as director of Saint Louis University's Cell and Molecular Biology graduate program.

Toni Kutchan is a leader in combining genetic techniques with detailed enzyme characterization and chemical structural characterization. This unique ability to be a leader across multiple technical fields influenced her recent election to the German National Academy of Science, whose members have long dominated the phytochemistry arena. Dr. Kutchan's work on the international plant biochemistry stage, in particular regarding medicinal plants, is combined with her outstanding record of mentoring students of all ages.

The Trustees Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the Academy mission of promoting the understanding and appreciation of science, engineering, and technology. Trustee Award recipients for 2011 are: Janey S. Symington, PhD, Molecular Cell Biologist (retired) Washington University and Linda Cottler, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology in Psychiatry and jointly appointed in the Program for Occupational Therapy at the Washington University School of Medicine and in Anthropology in the School of Arts and Sciences.
