Duke stem cell biologist wins 3 major awards in 1 month
Date:9/22/2008

DURHAM, N.C. Chay Kuo, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of cell biology at Duke University Medical Center, has won three prestigious awards in one fell swoop. His cutting-edge, noteworthy progress in stem cell research is the reason that three different organizations called him with good news this month.

"Chay is a remarkable physician-scientist whose work reveals secrets of neural stem cells, offering hope for children born with brain injuries," said Duke School of Medicine Dean Nancy C. Andrews.

"The Cell Biology Department is very proud of Chay and his achievements," said Brigid Hogan, Ph.D., chair of the Duke Department of Cell Biology. "He is a wonderful example of how scientists doing basic research at Duke are working hard to build bridges to clinicians dealing with the most heartbreaking medical problems. The innovative ideas of our young faculty like Chay, in combination with the most advanced technologies for real-time imaging and chemical screening, are pushing the envelope of discovery research at Duke."

"My job as a scientist is to tackle difficult questions and see how they will advance the field of neurological disease research in the coming years, and these awards will give me the resources to explore promising avenues and advance findings more quickly," said Dr. Kuo. "The awards are unexpected developments for my new laboratory and the dedicated young people who have joined me. None of this would have been possible without the generous support of the Jean and George Brumley, Jr., Neonatal and Perinatal Research Institute, the Tisch Cancer Investigators Program, and the Duke Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine program.

He heard from the National Institutes of Health that he won the Director's New Innovator Award of $1.5 million over five years. This award is for work on neural stem cells and their role in brain injury and repair. "The goal of this award is to encourage scientists to do exactly what they wan
