Date:2/9/2009

Internationally renowned scientist Dr. Huda Zoghbi, a pioneer in the study of Rett Syndrome and related autism spectrum disorders, will receive the 2009 Vilcek Prize in biomedical science. "We have been awarding these prizes annually since 2006," said Dr. Jan Vilcek, President and Cofounder of the Vilcek Foundation, "and this year I'm proud to announce the expansion of our awards program with the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise, to recognize the successes of foreign-born individuals in the early stages of their careers in the arts and biomedical sciences." Biologist Dr. Howard Chang has been named the first Creative Promise Prize recipient in biomedical science.

The Vilcek Prizes for Creative Promise are presented to foreign-born individuals, 38 years old or younger, in the fields of biomedical science and the arts.

At the awards presentation, to be held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, Thursday, April 2, 2009, Dr. Zoghbi and Mike Nichols, the 2009 recipient of the Vilcek Prize in the arts, will each receive a $50,000 cash award and a commemorative trophy created by designer Stefan Sagmeister.
