UT Southwestern scientist honored among best in Texas research
Date:1/8/2009

DALLAS Jan. 8, 2009 Dr. Rama Ranganathan, professor of pharmacology at UT Southwestern Medical Center, was recognized today as one of the state's top rising stars in research by The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST).

Dr. Ranganathan was named a recipient of one of three 2009 Edith and Peter O'Donnell Awards by the academy at its annual conference in Dallas. Dr. Ranganathan is director of the Systems Biology Division of the Cecil H. and Ida Green Comprehensive Center for Molecular, Computational and Systems Biology at UT Southwestern, where he also holds the Cecil H. and Ida M. Green Chair in Biomedical Science.

Each year, the O'Donnell Awards honor outstanding achievements by young investigators in science, medicine and engineering. Each award consists of a $25,000 honorarium, a citation and an inscribed statue.

Dr. Ranganathan received the award for science. His work aims to link basic research on molecules and cells with analysis of how biological systems function, both in health and in sickness. The ultimate goal of this field of research is to understand how networks of interactions on various levels from proteins and cells to tissues and organs produce well-honed biological systems that are more than the sum of their parts.

Other O'Donnell Award recipients this year are Dr. Brian Korgel of UT Austin, for engineering; and Dr. Brendan H.L. Lee of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, for medicine.

"Dr. Ranganathan embodies the best qualities of Texas science and the achievement this award seeks to recognize, rigorously pursuing important questions of cell science with innovative strategies," said Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, president of UT Southwestern. "We are grateful to Edith and Peter O'Donnell for this recognition of excellence, and we are proud to have Dr. Ranganathan as our colleague at UT Southwestern."
