Bethesda, MD The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is pleased to announce that Terry Orr-Weaver, PhD, will be the recipient of the FASEB 2013 Excellence in Science Award.

The award recognizes women whose outstanding career achievements in biological science have contributed significantly to further our understanding of a particular discipline by excellence in research. This prestigious award carries with it an unrestricted research grant of $10K.

Dr. Orr-Weaver has been widely recognized as a leader in the field of DNA replication and the cell cycle research. She has made significant contributions to understanding the molecular regulation of meiosis, gametogenesis, control of cell division during embryogenesis and changes in gene copy number during differentiation. Working with Drosophila, she has provided numerous insights into the fundamental control of cell division. As the result of her outstanding research contributions, Dr. Orr-Weaver was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Academy of Microbiology and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. She is an American Cancer Society Research Professor.

Dr. Orr-Weaver's teaching and mentoring accomplishments are exemplary. She served as chair of the MIT Graduate Committee, served on the Committee on Academic Performance, and since 2009 has chaired the Whitehead Fellows Program. She has trained a large number of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, who have gone on to very productive careers in academic or industrial science.

Dr. Orr-Weaver has also shown a high level of service contributions, including numerous review panels for governmental and foundation agencies and organizer of numerous national and international meetings. She has been a member of the Editorial Board of Chromosoma and the Annual Review of Genetics. She has served on the Board, as Vice-President and as President of the Genetics Society of America. She also has served on the Board and as President of the National Drosophila Board. She has been the member of numerous scientific advisory boards, notably the Damon Runyan Cancer Research Foundation, the MGH Cancer Center, and Boston's Children's Hospital.
