Developmental biologist Arthur Lander named Donald Bren Professor
Date:2/28/2013

Irvine, Calif., Feb. 28, 2013 Arthur Lander, a recognized leader in the emerging field of systems biology whose research has helped identify underlying causes for some cancers and birth defects, has been named the Donald Bren Professor of Developmental & Cell Biology at UC Irvine.

The Bren Professors Endowment was established with a gift from Donald Bren, chairman of the Irvine Company, to help UC Irvine attract and retain the nation's foremost scholars. Lander joins a distinguished group of faculty researchers, including two School of Biological Sciences colleagues, evolutionary biologist Francisco J. Ayala, a 2001 National Medal of Science honoree, and evolutionary biologist Michael Clegg, foreign secretary of the National Academy of Sciences.

Lander, 54, holds appointments in both developmental & cell biology and biomedical engineering at UC Irvine and is founding director of the campus's Center for Complex Biological Systems. He chaired the Department of Developmental & Cell Biology from 2000 to 2007. A fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, he earned a Ph.D. and an M.D. at UC San Francisco and joined the UC Irvine faculty in 1995.

"Arthur Lander is an exemplary, world-class leader in systems biology, and this endowment recognizes his success and continued dedication to understanding how complex cell interactions can lead to serious diseases and conditions," said Albert Bennett, the Hana & Francisco J. Ayala Dean of UC Irvine's School of Biological Sciences.

Lander and his laboratory team study how cells communicate with each other to coordinate the elaborate behaviors that underlie development and regeneration. The research helps explain why birth defects happen, how tissues control their size and how cancers grow. Lander helped identify the gene for Cornelia de Lange syndrome, a disabling, multisystem, genetic disease that affects one in 10,000 children and, with collaborators at UC Irvine
