The American Society for Microbiology honors Benjamin tenOever

Benjamin tenOever, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Microbiology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, has been chosen by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) to receive a 2010 ICAAC Young Investigator Award. Sponsored by Merck, U.S. Human Health Division, this award recognizes an early career scientist for research excellence in microbiology and infectious diseases.

Dr. tenOever completed his postdoctoral training in Molecular Biology at Harvard University in 2007 after receiving his Ph.D. in Experimental Medicine from McGill University in 2004. His interdisciplinary training subsequently allowed him to study one of the most important medical complexities of our time: the molecular biology of virus infection. Dr. tenOever's work focuses on the intricacies governing the cell's response to infection and the subsequent exploitation of that knowledge to generate novel strategies for vaccine and antiviral drug design. He has also expanded his research to include the role of miRNAs in the cellular response to virus infection.

In addition to his research, Dr. tenOever has taught both molecular biology and virology and has become a noted lecturer. While at Harvard University, he also served as assistant director of the DNA Sequencing and Genotyping Facility. More than a dozen high impact journals have published Dr. tenOever's research, including Science, Immunity, PNAS Nature Biotechnology and Cell. His prestigious honors include the Presidential Early Career in Science and Engineering award, the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers.
