The American Society for Microbiology honors Jörn Coers
Date:9/13/2011

Jrn Coers, Ph.D., Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, is honored by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) to receive a 2011 ICAAC Young Investigator Award for his work studying the molecular and genetic determinants that enable mammalian host cells to mount immune responses against intracellular pathogens. Sponsored by Merck, U.S. Human Health Division, this award recognizes an early career scientist for research excellence in microbiology and infectious diseases. Dr. Coers' nominator, Michael Starnbach of Harvard Medical School, describes him as "an accomplished and extraordinarily creative scientist who is certain to become a star in the field of pathogenesis."

Dr. Coers received his M.Sc. in Biology from the University of Konstanz, Germany. While enrolled at the University of Konstanz, Dr. Coers spent two and half years in Craig Roy's laboratory at SUNY Stony Brook and later at Yale University, studying how the bacterial pathogen Legionella pneumophila survives and replicates inside macrophages. Dr. Roy, a supporter of the nomination and American Academy of Microbiology Fellownow at Yale Universitysays he is "confident that Dr. Coers will continue to break new ground in understanding host pathogen interactions, and will emerge as a leader in his field." Dr. Coers then continued to the University of Basel, Switzerland for his doctoral training in the laboratory of Radek Skoda, where he employed transgenic mouse models to study the role of cytokine signaling in myeloproliferative diseases.

Dr. Coers returned to the topic of host-pathogen interactions for his postdoctoral training, applying his knowledge of mouse genetics to the study of infectious disease in the labs of Dr. Starnbach and Bill Dietrich at Harvard Medical School. The project, a collaborative venture between these two laboratories, was to map and identify mammalian genes responsible for susceptibility to Chlamydia trachomatis infection. It was here that his wor
