Whitehead Member Rudolf Jaenisch to receive MGH's Warren Triennial Prize
Date:12/16/2010

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (December 16, 2010) Whitehead Institute Founding Member Rudolf Jaenisch has been named a recipient of the 2011 Warren Triennial Prize of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

By tradition, the prize is awarded to two scientists, and Jaenisch will share the prize with Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, who is on the faculty of both Kyoto University in Japan and the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco.

"The Warren Prize is the top scientific award presented by the MGH, and we are delighted to be able to honor the groundbreaking work of Drs. Yamanaka and Jaenisch," says Daniel Haber, MD, chair of the MGH Executive Committee on Research and director of the MGH Cancer Center. "Their research has opened up a new direction for the future of medicine, which is particularly appropriate at a time when we are commemorating the scientific leadership the MGH has displayed throughout its history."

"I am very honored and particularly pleased to be awarded this prize with Yamanaka, who has made such important contributions to this field," says Jaenisch, who is also a professor of biology at MIT.

In 2006 Yamanaka created a new type of cell, the induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell. By adding four transcription factors to adult skin cells, Yamanaka reprogrammed the cells to an embryonic stem cell-like state. Working with these iPS cells, Yamanaka showed that they are able to give rise to almost any type of mammalian cell.

Both Jaenisch and Yamanaka reported growing live mice from iPS cells in 2007. Jaenisch then pushed to realize iPS cells' therapeutic potential by correcting sickle cell anemia in mice and treating Parkinson's disease in rats. Earlier this year, Jaenisch reprogrammed human blood cells into iPS cells that could be used to study hematological diseases. Jaenisch has also continued his work with human embryonic stem cells, to understand and overcome these cells' limitations for use in regenerative biology.
