French scientist wins the Journal of Experimental Biology Outstanding Paper Prize 2009
Date:11/30/2009

The Editors of The Journal of Experimental Biology are pleased to announce that Dr Xavier Noblin from Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in the Universit de Nice-Sophia-Antipolis is the winner of this year's JEB Outstanding Paper Prize. 'The prize is awarded in recognition of an outstanding achievement and is intended to encourage young scientists,' says Hans Hoppleler, the JEB Editor-in-Chief, and adds that 'we truly appreciate when authors submit their very best work to the JEB'. Explaining how the prize is awarded Hoppeler says 'Over the year, we note all the truly outstanding contributions, and the selection is then made by a vote of all of the Editors.'

Noblin was the first author on the paper 'Surface tension propulsion of fungal spores.' (Noblin, et al., 2009) and admits that he was 'very surprised, but very happy and honoured' when he received the news. Reflecting on the qualities that made the paper stand out, Hoppeler says 'This paper gives a sound physical description of an exciting novel process and is an outstanding example of the type of paper that we like to see most at JEB, even though we are not a "botanical" journal.'

Noblin's route into biology has been rather unorthodox. Gaining a degree in Physics from the Ecole Normale Suprieure in Lyon in 1998, Noblin moved north to Paris, where he joined the Institut Curie to work on the physics of surface wetting. 'I was looking at the statics and dynamics of wetting phenomena,' explains Noblin, 'in particular the vibration of droplets,' he adds. Noblin explains that the physics of droplet movement has intrigued physicists for decades and that vibrations can move drops that have stuck to surfaces.

While at the Institut Curie, Noblin mixed with biologists, and at the end of his PhD decided to apply his understanding of fluid mechanics to biological systems. Knowing that Jacques Dumais' lab in Harvard was doing some interesti
