Susan M. Gasser to receive the 2012 FEBS/EMBO Women in Science Award
Date:2/15/2012

Heidelberg -- The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) announce Susan Gasser, director of the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research in Basel, Switzerland, as the winner of the 2012 FEBS/EMBO Women in Science Award. Professor Gasser has been recognized for her outstanding scientific research on genome stability and epigenetics and her commitment to mentoring women pursuing a career in science.

The FEBS/EMBO Women in Science Award rewards the exceptional achievements of a female researcher in molecular biology over the previous five years. Winners of the award are role models who inspire future generations of women in science.

The Gasser laboratory studies two research topics of central importance to human health and disease: the maintenance of genome stability through DNA repair, and the role of epigenetic inheritance during tissue differentiation. Susan and her colleagues have examined how the experience of the cell and the environment affects the epigenetic code in different organisms. The Swiss scientist has authored more than 200 scientific articles and reviews over the last thirty years. The implications of her research are far-reaching for human disease, notably cancer. "Susan Gasser is not only a first-rate scientist, but is also playing an important role as one of the most dynamic and successful female scientific leaders in Europe and, indeed, anywhere," stated Gottfried Schatz, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry at the University of Basel.

"This is indeed a great honour, since being recognized as a top scientist seems harder for a woman than for a man," said the award winner upon hearing of her distinction. "My own success, in any case, reflects that of my team, which balances individual goals with those of the group as a whole. This coordination is a talent women often have."

Mentoring female scientists was a role that she assume
