Dr. Brian Druker honored with Japan Prize
Date:1/25/2012

PORTLAND, Ore. Oregon Health & Science University congratulates Brian J. Druker, M.D., who has been awarded the 2012 Japan Prize in Healthcare and Medical Technology for his pioneering role in targeted cancer drugs. The Japan Prize is considered one of the world's most prestigious awards in science and technology. Druker's research proved it was possible to shut down cells that enable cancer to grow without harming healthy ones a discovery that helped make once-fatal forms of the disease manageable.

"On behalf of all OHSU employees, I extend our congratulations to Brian," said OHSU President Joe Robertson, M.D., M.B.A. "Brian's brilliance, hard work and dedication have impacted millions of lives.

It is impossible to not be inspired by him and want to be a part of his important mission to end cancer as we know it."

Druker shares the Japan Prize in Healthcare and Medical Technology with Nicholas B. Lydon, Ph.D., who became a founder and director of Blueprint Medicines after a career at Novartis, and Janet D. Rowley, M.D., Blum-Riese Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine, Molecular Genetics & Cell Biology and Human Genetics at The University of Chicago. All three were involved in the scientific discoveries that led to the development of one of the first drugs to target cancer-specific molecules. In addition to the prize for Healthcare and Medical Technology, the Japan Prize Foundation also recognized Masato Sagawa, president of Intermetallics Co., with the award for Environment, Energy and Infrastructure for developing the world's highest performing permanent magnet and contributing to energy conservation.
