MBL director and CEO and cell biology pioneer Gary Borisy elected to National Academy of Sciences
Date:4/28/2009

Research UK. "The identification of tubulin was a landmark, a turning point in the field."

In 2006 Dr. Borisy became the MBL's 13th Director and 3rd CEO. Previously he was Associate Vice President for Research and the Leslie B. Arey Professor of Cell and Molecular Biology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. After serving a postdoctoral fellowship at the MRC in Cambridge, England, Dr. Borisy joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, rising through the professional ranks to Chairman of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Perlman-Bascom Professor of Life Sciences, before moving to Northwestern in 2000.

Dr. Borisy first came to the MBL in 1965 as a student and returned in 1972 to establish a summer laboratory where he conducted research for five years on cytoskeleton formation. He also served as a consultant to the MBL's Physiology course in 1982 and 1983.

As director and CEO, Dr. Borisy has played a key role in numerous MBL accomplishments, including the acquisition of $10 million in state funds awarded to the MBL last year as part of the historic $1 billion Massachusetts Life Sciences Act. Most recently, Dr. Borisy was instrumental in the formation of the Woods Hole Consortium, a new alliance between the MBL, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Woods Hole Research Center that brings the combined scientific power of the three institutions to bear on some of the major issues facing society today.

In addition to his administrative duties, Dr. Borisy also leads the MBL's Combinatorial Imaging Group, which is developing new imaging techniques to observe and identify different species of microbes, such as bacteria.

Dr. Borisy is the author of more than 200 papers, the editor of two books, and has received numerous professional honors, including an NIH Merit award and the Carl Zeiss award from the German So
