Basic Scientist Mark Roth Wins MacArthur Fellowship
Date:9/25/2007

Cell biologist receives $500,000 'genius award' with 'no strings attached'

SEATTLE, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Mark Roth, Ph.D., a cell biologist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, is among 24 recipients of this year's MacArthur Fellowships, a "genius" award given annually by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Roth will receive $500,000 over five years of "no-strings-attached" support.

Roth, a member of the Hutchinson Center's Basic Sciences Division, is perhaps best known for his research in reversible metabolic hibernation, a technique that one day may be used to help "buy time" for critically ill trauma patients on organ-transplant lists and in operating rooms, emergency rooms and battlefields.

"I'm just incredibly humbled and happy to be recognized by such a wonderful organization," said Roth, who has pursued a variety of research avenues, including studies on gene regulation, chromosome structure and function, autoimmune disease and, most recently, induced metabolic hibernation.

"The creative work I've been able to do has depended upon my interaction with people from vastly different scientific backgrounds -- people whose scientific orbits wouldn't normally intersect with mine. I'm hoping this fellowship will increase the possibility for more such creative collaborations," he said.

The MacArthur Fellowship Program was established in 1981 and includes 756 Fellows. In addition to Roth, those honored this year include a forensic anthropologist, a spider-silk biologist, a short-story writer, a nanotechnologist, a choreographer and a master vocalist, among others.

"As a group, this new class of Fellows takes one's breath away," said Daniel J. Socolow, director of the MacArthur Fellows Program, in a written statement. "As individuals, each is an original. To the person, they confirm that the creative individual is alive and well, at the cutting edge, and at work singularly and powerfully to make our world
