Otto Warburg Medal for Alexander Varshavsky
Date:4/2/2012

research on ubiquitin-dependent intracellular protein degradation has revolutionised that area of research," Professor Irmgard Sinning, president of GBM says. "We owe to him a series of discoveries with a tremendous impact on cell biology and helping us to better understand and study numerous diseases."

"Let this award be an incentive to all early career scientists", stated David Clark, SVP Life Science Journal Publishing at Elsevier. "Elsevier will continue to support each next generation of scientists with awards and support tools such as in our recent BiggerBrains campaign."

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The Laureate

Alexander Varshavsky (born in Moscow on November 8th, 1946) is a Russian-American biochemist and professor at the California Institute of Technology. In 1970 Varshavsky obtained his bachelor's degree in chemistry at Moscow University and in 1973 his PhD in biochemistry at the Institute of Molecular Biology in Moscow. From 1973 until 1976 he worked at the latter institute as a research assistant before he emigrated to the United States in 1977. He at first accepted a position as an Assistant Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Biology (in 1977), then as an Associate Professor (in 1980) and in 1986 as a Full Professor. In 1992 he went to the California Institute of Technology where he works as Howard and Gwen Laurie Smits Professor of Cell Biology.

The Award Ceremony

Professor Alexander Varshavsky has been awarded the Otto Warburg Medal on Friday, 30 March, at 5:15 pm during the Mosbacher Colloquium (www.mosbacher-kolloquium.org). After accepting the medal, he gave a talk about his research.
