March of Dimes awards $250,000 to researcher who identified heart disease genes
Date:3/8/2013

and ceremony at the Willard Intercontinental in Washington, D.C. He also will deliver the 18th Annual March of Dimes Prize Lecture titled: "The Molecular Circuitry of Heart Development, Disease and Repair" at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center during the Pediatric Academic Societies annual meeting. CBS sportscaster Greg Gumbel, member of the March of Dimes national Honorary Board of Trustees, is expected to host the award ceremony.

Individuals who receive the March of Dimes Prize are leaders in the field of developmental biology. Their pioneering research offers hope for prevention and treatments for some of the most serious birth defects and other human diseases.

The March of Dimes Prize in Developmental Biology has been awarded annually since 1996 to investigators whose research has profoundly advanced the science that underlies the understanding of birth defects. The March of Dimes Foundation created the Prize as a tribute to Dr. Jonas Salk shortly before his death in 1995. Dr. Salk received Foundation support for his work on the first safe and effective polio vaccine. The prize is a cash award of $250,000 and a silver medal in the design of the Roosevelt dime, honoring of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, March of Dimes founder.

In its 18-year history, the March of Dimes Prize in Developmental Biology has been the crowning glory of a distinguished research career or a stepping stone on the path toward future honors for researchers. In fact, six past March of Dimes Prize recipients have gone on to win a Nobel Prize.
