Cell death research wins professor Andreas Strasser 2011 Victoria Prize
Date:11/14/2011

ath. "In the 22 years that I have collaborated with Andreas, cell death research has grown from small beginnings into a huge field that is important in many areas of medical research," Professor Vaux said. "Andreas can take credit for driving many advances during this time. He discovered key molecules that regulate cell death in mammals, and was the very first to establish the link between defects in cell death and autoimmunity."

Professor Strasser is the institute's fourth Victoria Prize winner since the prize's inception in 1998. Previous winners have included Professor Don Metcalf (2000) from the institute's Cancer and Haematology division, Professor Vaux (2003) and Professor Peter Colman (2008), head of the institute's Structural Biology division.

The director of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Professor Doug Hilton, said Professor Strasser had made a huge contribution to medical research. "Andreas is held in immense regard by his peers," Professor Hilton said. "He is a very deserving winner of Victoria's highest prize for science and technology."

Professor Strasser has received many awards recognising his scientific achievements, including the Friedrich Miescher Prize from the Swiss Society for Biochemistry, the Dr Josef Steiner Cancer Research Prize and the Glaxo Wellcome Australia Prize, which he shared with Professor Vaux.

The Minister for Innovation, Services and Small Business, the Hon. Ms Louise Asher MLA, today presented Professor Strasser with the Victoria Prize. The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute will receive the $100,000 Anne & Eric Smorgon Memorial Award, provided by the Jack and Robert Smorgon Families Foundation to the Victoria Prize winner's organisation.
