Biotech Hall of Fame Inductees Announced

F, which produces a

protein that plays a critical role in angiogenesis.

Andrew Z. Fire and Craig C. Mello

Co-recipients of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for

their discovery of RNA interference -- gene silencing by

double-stranded RNA. RNA interference occurs in plants, animals, and

humans. It is of great importance for the regulation of gene

expression, participates in defense against viral infections, and

keeps jumping genes under control. RNA interference is widely used in

basic science as a method to study the function of genes and it may

lead to novel therapies.

Robert Langer

In 1999 Forbes magazine named Prof. Langer, Department of Chemical

Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as one of the 25

most important individuals in biotechnology in the world. His work is

at the interface of biotechnology and materials science. A major focus

is the study and development of polymers to deliver drugs,

particularly genetically engineered proteins, DNA and RNAi,

continuously at controlled rates for prolonged periods of time.

"There is no greater recognition than that of one's peers," commented G. Steven Burrill, CEO of Burrill & Company, "and we are delighted to recognize these outstanding inductees to the Biotech Hall of Fame."

The Biotech Meeting at Laguna Niguel is the premier industry conference exclusively for CEOs of biotechnology companies. The Biotech Meeting (now in its 20th year) is held annually at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Laguna Niguel (Southern California). It is running October 8-9, 2007 and over 250 leading biotech CEOs have gathered to share management ideas, set an agenda for the industry and network with each other.
