Dr. Lander's honors and awards include the MacArthur Foundation Prize Fellowship in 1987, the Woodrow Wilson Prize for Public Service from Princeton University in 1998, the City of Medicine Award in 2001, the Gairdner Foundation International Award of Canada in 2002, the AAAS Award for Public Understanding of Science and Technology in 2004, and the Albany Prize in Medicine and Biological Research in 2010. He became a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in 1997 and the Institute of Medicine in 1999.
Dart/NYU Biotechnology Achievement Faculty Award:
Michael L. Dustin, PhD, the Muriel G. and George W. Singer Professor of Molecular Immunology, NYU School of Medicine
Dr. Dustin obtained a BA in Biology from Boston University in 1984 and a PhD in Cell and Developmental Biology from Harvard University in 1990. As a graduate student with Timothy Springer, he co-discovered intercellular adhesion molecules 1 and 2, demonstrated the interaction of CD58 with CD2, determined the 2D affinity of CD2 for CD58 in a membrane interface, and demonstrated inside-out signaling mediated by the integrin LFA-1 in response to antigen-receptor triggering in T cells. These findings were documented in eight first author papers.
Dr. Dustin completed his post-doctoral training in Stuart Kornfeld's lab at Washington University where he collaborated on defining new signals involved in lysosome biogenesis using novel chimeric enzyme libraries. Dr. Dustin joined the faculty at Washington University in 1993. His collaborative work there led to the first dynamic description of immunological synapse formation using the supported planar bilayer model. Upon moving to NYU School of Medicine in 2001, Dustin's lab focused on the problem of signaling in the immunological synapse an
