Geneticist Francis Collins named first recipient of Inamori Ethics Prize at Case Western Reserve
Date:4/9/2008

oject to be one of the most significant scientific undertakings of our time. All the groundbreaking data are now available to the scientific community without restrictions on access or use.

Since the project's culmination in 2003, Collins has directed NHGRI's efforts to ensure that the important genetic data contained within the book are translated into powerful tools and thoughtful strategies to advance biological knowledge and improve human health.

Collins aims to open avenues for genome research to benefit the health of people living in developing nations, building on his own experiences as a physician volunteer in a rural missionary hospital in Nigeria.

"Throughout his long and distinguished career, Dr. Collins has consistently emphasized the importance of ethical and legal issues in genetics, while at the same time working tirelessly to improving the lives of people worldwide," said Eastwood.

According to the NHGRI, its supported initiatives currently include efforts to map human genetic variation, to develop less costly sequencing technologies and to unravel the genetics of cancer and other common diseases. Following the precedent set by the Human Genome Project under Collins' leadership, these projects are committed to making their data rapidly and freely available to the worldwide scientific community.

His book, "The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief" (Free Press, 2006), which broaches the interface between science and faith, spent several weeks on The New York Times bestseller's list.

Collins received a bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Virginia, a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Yale University and his M.D. from the University of North Carolina. After an internal medicine residency at UNC and a genetics fellowship at Yale, he joined the faculty at the University of Michigan School of Medicine. He was appointed director of the National Center for Human
