David Julius Wins 2013 Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research
Date:6/12/2013

SAN FRANCISCO, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson & Johnson today named David Julius, PhD, chair of the Department of Physiology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), the winner of the 2013 Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research. Dr. Julius was chosen for his discovery of the molecular mechanism that controls thermosensation (sensory perception of temperature) and elucidation of the role this mechanism plays in the sensation of acute and inflammatory pain. By providing a mechanistic view of how stimuli are detected in the body, his discovery significantly advanced the study of pain and may lead to new pain therapies.

The Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research was created by Johnson & Johnson to honor the legacy of one of the most passionate, creative and productive scientists of the 20th century, Dr. Paul Janssen (1926-2003). Dr. Paul – as he was known in the scientific community – founded Janssen Pharmaceutica, which was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1961. His work led to the development of more than 80 transformational medicines in several fields, including pain management, psychiatry, infectious disease and gastroenterology.

"The progressive research of Dr. Julius has dramatically shifted the approach to thermosensation exploration, with significant implications for future developments in the treatment of chronic pain and inflammatory syndromes," said Dr. Paul Stoffels, Chief Scientific Officer, Johnson & Johnson. "His body of work gives us a deeper understanding of the molecular logic that connects ion channels, sensory biology and behavior, enabling the development of more effective treatments for those suffering from neurogenic inflammatory diseases."
