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

of Sciences, the European Molecular Biology Organization, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

The Vilcek Foundation is also proud to present Yibin Kang, PhD, with its 2011 Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science. Currently an Associate Professor of Molecular Biology at Princeton University, Dr. Kang's research greatly contributes to the general understanding of the molecular basis of cancer metastasis. His work focuses on the identification of genes and pathways that control metastasis, and their role in the propensity of cancer cells to metastasize to different organs. The Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science, which is accompanied by a $25,000 cash award, recognizes the accomplishments of foreign-born scientists, not more than 38 years old, who are in the early stages of their professional careers.

Dr. de Lange and Dr. Kang were chosen after months of deliberation by juries composed of eminent scientists from the New York University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Salk Institute, the Rockefeller University, and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The juries also selected four finalists for the Creative Promise Prize in Biomedical Science:

  • Irish-born Katherine Fitzgerald, PhD, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School;
  • Russian-born Ekaterina Heldwein, PhD, Assistant Professor of Molecular Biology and Microbiology at Tufts University School of Medicine;
  • Israeli-born Galit Lahav, PhD, Associate Professor in Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School; and
  • Argentinean-born Elina Zuniga, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of California San Diego.

Each finalist will receive a cash award of $5,000.

The prizewinners and finalists will be honored at the Vilcek Foundation's annual awards presentation dinner
