Genetics Society of America selects 5 geneticists to receive society's 2014 Awards
Date:1/29/2014

y fathering scientific research fields that have grown to hundreds of independent research groups. Ausubel's findings support the hypothesis that key features of host-defense responses, and the offensive strategies pathogenic microbes use, have ancient origins.

He has been an author on over 300 publications, has trained over 30 graduate students and 70 postdoctoral researchers, spawning a highly-successful scientific lineage.

Dr. Ausubel is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Academy of Microbiology. He currently holds an NIH MERIT Award, has served on the editorial boards of fourteen journals, numerous advisory boards, and has edited a popular manual detailing protocols in molecular biology.

The Thomas Hunt Morgan Medal is awarded to an individual GSA member for lifetime achievement in the field of genetics. It recognizes the full body of work of an exceptional geneticist. The Medal was established by GSA in 1981 and named in honor of Thomas Hunt Morgan (1866), a 1933 Nobel Prize laureate for his work with Drosophila chromosomes and their role in heredity.

Recipient: Hugo J. Bellen, DVM, PhD, Baylor College of Medicine and Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Award: George W. Beadle Award

Dr. Bellen holds positions as the Charles Darwin Professor in Genetics and the March of Dimes Chair in Developmental Biology, Departments of Molecular and Human Genetics and Neuroscience, and he is also Director of the Graduate Program in Developmental Biology at the Baylor College of Medicine and an HHMI Investigator.

Dr. Bellen has made seminal contributions to the fields of genetics, developmental biology, and neuroscience through a steady stream of insightful experiments in Drosophila.

His lab has addressed fundamental questions regarding genes involved in neuronal development, neurotransmission, and most r
