NYU School of Medicine presents biomedical researchers Dart/NYU Biotechnology Achievement Awards
Date:3/22/2010

NEW YORK, March 22, 2010The Biotechnology Study Center of NYU School of Medicine will hold its annual awards symposium on April 5, 2010, to honor three outstanding leaders in biomedical research. The Dart/NYU Biotechnology Achievement Awards recognize the role of pure science in the development of pharmaceuticals and honors those scientists whose work has led to major advances to improving care provided at the patient's bedside. Recipients of this year's award include:

Martin Raff, MD, Emeritus Professor of Biology and Scientist in the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, University College London, for discovering how cell surface molecules govern life, death and memory in the nervous and immune systems.

Paul Greengard, PhD, Vincent Astor Professor, Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, The Rockefeller University, for translating Nobel-prize winning discoveries of signal transduction in the nervous system from bench to bedside.

Leslie B. Vosshall, PhD, Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute; Chemers Family Associate Professor; Head of the Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior, The Rockefeller University, for discovering odor sensing pathways in insects that may lead to the design of 21st century insect repellants.

"We applaud the honorees of this year's distinguished awards for their innovative research in biotechnology and molecular biology," said Gerald Weissmann, MD, research professor of medicine in the division of rheumatology and director of the Biotechnology Study Center. "The discoveries of these extraordinary scientists have already had an impact on human health and promise even more for the future." Dr. Weissmann will chair the awards symposium, co-sponsored by the NYU School of Medicine's Honors Program and featuring presentations by each of the awardees.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of this awards symposium. Previous winners from both institutions include:
