Scientific Achievement

Harold E. Varmus and J. Michael Bishop

Co-recipients of the 1989 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for

their discovery of the cellular origins of retroviral oncogenes. They

directed the research that led to the discovery of proto-oncogenes --

normal genes that can be converted to cancer genes by genetic damage.

This work eventually led to the recognition that all cancer probably

arises from damage to normal genes, and provided new strategies for

the detection and treatment of cancer.

Francis Collins

Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at

the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He led the successful effort

to complete Human Genome Project (HGP), a complex multidisciplinary

scientific enterprise directed at mapping and sequencing all the human

DNA, and determining aspects of its function.

Napoleone Ferrera

Dr. Ferrara and his team of scientists at Genentech Inc. made a

groundbreaking discovery that added greatly to our understanding and

treatment of cancer. It was the identification and cloning of a gene

termed vascular endothelial growth factor, or VEG
