American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology honors 11 outstanding scientists
Date:7/28/2010

scientist award and its companion young investigator award are issued in alternating years. The distinguished scientist award that Brown and Goldstein won consists of a plaque, a $10,000 cash prize and travel expenses for the recipients to present lectures at the ASBMB annual meeting.

Charles E. Chalfant, an associate professor at Virginia Commonwealth University-School of Medicine and a research career scientist at the McGuire Veterans Administration Medical Center in Richmond, Va., won the Avanti Young Investigator Award in Lipid Research for his work on lipid signaling pathways regulating alternative pre-mRNA processing and eicosanoid biosynthesis. The award recognizes outstanding research contributions by young investigators with no more than 15 years of experience. He will receive a plaque, a $2,000 cash prize and transportation and expenses to present a lecture at the ASBMB annual meeting.

Job Dekker, an associate professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, won the ASBMB Young Investigator Award, which recognizes outstanding research contributions to biochemistry and molecular biology by those who have no more than 15 years postdoctoral experience. Dekker developed and applied powerful new technologies to study the three-dimensional organization of chromosomes and genomes. His pioneering work has led to fundamental new insights into genome organization and regulation. The award consists of a plaque, a $5,000 cash prize and travel expenses for the recipient to present a lecture at the ASBMB annual meeting.

Christine Guthrie, a professor at the University of California, San Francisco, won the ASBMB-Merck Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to research in biochemistry and molecular biology. Guthrie, an American Cancer Society research professor of molecular genetics, pioneered the use of budding yeast as a model organism for a mechanistic understanding of messenger RNA splicing. The award consists of a
