Whitehead member Rudolf Jaenisch honored for groundbreaking stem cell research
Date:2/16/2011

ead Institute Director David Page, such recognition for his long-time colleague hardly comes as a surprise.

"This latest honor for Rudolf is further validation of his pioneering work in cellular reprogramming," Page says. "Rudolf has consistently led the way in applying novel techniques in this arena to the treatment of human disease. He's more than deserving of these accolades."

The Israel-based Wolf Foundation, established by the late German-born inventor, diplomat and philanthropist, Dr. Ricardo Wolf, has awarded five Wolf Prizes annually since 1978 to outstanding scientists and artists "for achievements in the interest of mankind and friendly relations among peoples, irrespective of nationality, race, color, religion, sex, or political view."

""In the 33 years of its existence, the Wolf Prize has brought great honor to the State of Israel and to scientific activity both in Israel and worldwide," says Minister of Education and Wolf Foundation Council Chairman, Mr. Gideon Sa'ar. "Moreover, the prize has become a predictor of the Nobel: one out of every three Wolf Prize Laureatesin Chemistry, Physics and Medicinehas gone on to receive the Nobel Prize."

Jaenisch and Yamanaka will share the $100,000 prize, which will be awarded by the President of the State of Israel and by the Minister of Education, at a special ceremony at the Knesset at the end of May.

Jaenisch is the second Whitehead Member to receive the Wolf Prize in Medicine. Founding Member Robert Weinberg was so honored in 2004 for his work in tumor genetics.
