Roger Brent and Robert Eisenman Named AAAS Fellows
Date:1/11/2011

SEATTLE, Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center basic scientists Roger Brent, Ph.D., a systems biologist, and Robert Eisenman, Ph.D., a molecular biologist and geneticist, have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, or AAAS. Election as a fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.

Brent, a member of the Hutchinson Center's Basic Sciences Division, is being honored "for outstanding contributions in the area of biochemistry, transcription, genomics, and systems biology."

Brent's studies are highly interdisciplinary. Using single cells as model systems, his studies focus on how cell signaling pathways represent and transmit information. This work may have particular relevance to cancer, since abnormal signaling plays a role in cancer development. His research draws on molecular biological methods, genetics and computational biology, and has led to the development of a number of innovative technologies for understanding quantitative cell behavior that have utility for addressing wider biological problems.

Before he joined the Basic Sciences faculty at the Hutchinson Center in July 2010, he was director and research director of the Molecular Sciences Institute in Berkeley, Calif.

In addition to his academic work, Brent has been a longtime adviser to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. He is an inventor of 12 issued and several pending patents. He also advises various U.S. federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, on functional genomics and computational biology.  His other honors include the 2003 Gabbay Award in Biotechnology and Medicine for his work on protein interactions.

Eisenman, also a member of the Center's Basic Sciences Division, is being recognized "for his pathbreaking studies on the ro
