Date:9/14/2007

Washington, DC September 13, 2007 One of the 2007 American Society for Microbiology (ASM) ICAAC Young Investigator Awards sponsored by Merck and Company, Inc., U.S. Human Health, will be presented to Joanna Kubler-Kielb, Ph.D., Research Fellow, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), Bethesda, Maryland. Dr. Kubler-Kielb is being honored for her research excellence in microbiology and infectious disease.

Dr. Kubler-Kielbs research on infectious diseases is very wide-ranging and includes anthrax, malaria, shigellosis, chanchroid and Lyme diseases. She has coauthored 25 publications, twelve of them as first author. Her research on a new transmission-blocking vaccine against malaria was described in the 2007 paper Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Highlights of her research include elucidating the structure of glycolipids from Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease, and her contributions toward developing a new candidate vaccine against anthrax. Her dedication to research led to her receiving a Fellows Award for Research Excellence from the NIH during her postdoctoral work. In addition, Kubler-Kielb has received international recognition for her work in the preparation of experimental antibacterial glycoprotein and protein vaccines.

Dr. Kubler-Kielb received her M. Sc. Eng. degree from the Technical University of Wroclaw, and her Ph.D. from the Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy, Polish Academy of Sciences, Wroclaw, Poland. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, NICHD/LMDI, Bethesda, Maryland.
