Vilcek Foundation names recipients of 2011 Vilcek Prizes in Biomedical Science
Date:2/24/2011

New York, NY, February 22, 2011 - The Vilcek Foundation is pleased to announce the 2011 winners of its annual prizes honoring the contributions of foreign-born scientists and artists.

The sixth annual Vilcek Prize for Biomedical Science, given in recognition of a sustained record of innovation and achievement, is awarded to Dutch-born Titia de Lange, PhD, the Leon Hess Professor and head of the laboratory of Cell Biology and Genetics at Rockefeller University, for her body of research on mechanisms that help maintain genome stability. She and her colleagues study telomeres, the elements that protect chromosome ends from unnecessary repair and mediate their replication. This work has led to a greater understanding of how telomeres protect chromosome ends, and what happens when telomere function is lost during the early stages of tumorigenesis. The Vilcek Prize for Biomedical Science includes a $100,000 cash award and a trophy created by noted designer Stefan Sagmeister.

The Vilcek Prizes embody the Foundation's mission to publicize and celebrate the accomplishments of foreign-born artists and scientists. "Every year, the Vilcek Prizes bring to light the many ways that immigrants contribute to American society," said Jan T. Vilcek, President of the Foundation. "These contributions are instrumental in maintaining the leadership position of the United States in scientific research and the arts."

The Vilcek Prize adds to Dr. de Lange's already impressive roster of awards and distinctions, which includes the 2010 Clowes Memorial Award from the American Association for Cancer Research, the 2008 Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center Prize, the 2005 NIH Director's Pioneer Award, and the 2001 Paul Marks Prize for Cancer Research. Dr. de Lange is also an American Cancer Society Research Professor, and serves as Associate Director of the university's Anderson Center for Cancer Research. She is an elected member of the Royal Dutch Academy
