NIH Director's Awards go to 3 Johns Hopkins scientists
Date:9/20/2011

A pioneer in the field of epigenetics who has been spearheading the use of genome-wide technology for epigenetics research, a researcher who has revealed a weakness in the tuberculosis bacterium that makes it more susceptible to antibiotics, and a scientist who seeks to revolutionize new methods for toxicological testing to improve human health and reduce animal testing have received Director's Awards from the National Institutes of Health.

Andrew P. Feinberg, M.D., M.P.H., King Fahd Professor of Medicine, Molecular Biology & Genetics and Oncology, and director of the Center for Epigenetics, Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, is one of 13 winners this year of the Director's Pioneer Award, which confers $2.5 million in direct funding over five years.

Johns Hopkins Center for Tuberculosis Research microbial geneticist Gyanu Lamichhane, Ph.D., is one of 49 recipients of the New Innovator Award, which is given to promising scientists in the early stages of their careers and supported, directly, with $1.5 million in research funding over five years.

Thomas Hartung, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, where he is the inaugural Doerenkamp-Zbinden Professor and Chair for Evidence-Based Toxicology, is one of 17 recipients of a $5 million Transformative Research Projects Award.

"The NIH Director's Award programs reinvigorate the biomedical workforce by providing unique opportunities to conduct research that is neither incremental nor conventional," says James M. Anderson, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives, who guides the Common Fund's High-Risk Research program. "The awards (this year totaling $143.8 million) are intended to catalyze giant leaps forward for any area of biomedical research, allowing investigators to go in entirely new direct
