Geneticist receives Excellence in Science Award from coalition of biomedical researchers
Date:6/30/2011

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Susan R. Wessler, who holds a University of California President's Chair and is a distinguished professor of genetics in the Department of Botany and Plant Sciences at the University of California, Riverside, has been named the recipient of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) 2012 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. Wessler is internationally recognized for her work in plant genome structure and stability.

With more than 100,000 members, FASEB is the largest coalition of biomedical research association in the United States. Its mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences.

As part of the award, Wessler will receive a $10,000 research grant. She also will present an award lecture in 2012 at the Model Organisms to Human Biology Conference sponsored by the Genetics Society of America.

"Susan is the first person among plant scientists to receive what is one of the highest awards in science," said Natasha Raikhel, the director of UC Riverside's Institute for Integrative Biology, of which Wessler is a key member. "Her contributions to science, science teaching and to scientific society in general are enormous. We all are very proud of her."

Wessler is a member of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In February 2011, she was elected home secretary of the NAS. She '/>"/>
