The Biotechnology Study Center is an academic center for the study of biotechnology with the end-goal of significantly impacting public health. The Dart/NYU Biotechnology Achievement Awards are supported by a generous grant from Dart Neuroscience LLC since 2004 and are awarded on behalf of the Fellows of the Center at The Biotechnology Center.

BACKGROUND on 2010 AWARD RECIPIENTS:

In Basic Biotechnology: Martin Raff, MD, Emeritus Professor of Biology and Scientist in the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, University College London, defined cell-surface antigenic markers for mouse T and B lymphocytes and used them to study the distributions and functions of these cells. In cell biology, Dr. Raff discovered (with Stefanello dePetris and R.B. Taylor) patching, capping, and endocytosis of surface immunoglobulin on B lymphocytes, providing the first link between ligand-induced redistribution and endocytosis of cell-surface receptors and intracellular signaling; these findings also made an important contribution to the evolving concept of cell membranes as fluid structures. Dr. Raff also provided the first evidence that most mammalian cells require signals from other cells to avoid apoptosis, or programmed cell death. In neurobiology, he used cell-surface markers to di
