Date:9/23/2010

NEW YORK, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Paul Greengard, a Nobel Prize-winning neurobiologist and director of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research at The Rockefeller University, will receive the Karolinska Institutet's Bicentennial Gold Medal on September 23rd, 2010.  This medal is the highest award conferred by Karolinska Institutet during its 200th anniversary celebrations, and recognizes the work of an individual not permanently located at the Karolinska Institutet, who has contributed to the esteemed Swedish university's activities.  Since 1901, the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has selected the Nobel laureates in Physiology or Medicine.

"Dr. Greengard is one of the most prominent scientists of this century," says Harriet Wallberg-Henriksson, President of Karolinska Institutet.  "His seminal work has revealed several of the mechanisms behind psychiatric diseases.  He has been a mentor for generations of Karolinska Institutet scientists, who have been inspired by his scientific leadership and by his extraordinary capacity to reveal the biological meaning and medical implications of a series of unexpected observations from the laboratory."

Dr. Greengard has authored over 1,000 major scientific publications, and on September 2, 2010, he published an article in the scientific journal Nature that has been lauded as a potential paradigm shift in how Alzheimer's will be studied, and possibly treated, in the future. The article, entitled "Gamma-secretase Activating Protein is a Therapeutic Target for Alzheimer's Disease," outlines the discovery of a protein in the brain that stimulates the production of beta-amyloid, a protein in the brain believed to be one of the biological causes of Alzheimer's disease.

Dr. Greengard is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and has received more than 50 awards and honors.  In 2000, Dr. Paul Greengard, together with his wife, the renowned
