Internationally acclaimed immunologist shares $1 million Shaw Prize
Date:6/8/2011

DALLAS June 8, 2011 Dr. Bruce Beutler, an internationally recognized leader in immunology recruited to be the director of a new Center for the Genetics of Host Defense at UT Southwestern Medical Center, is one of three winners to share the $1 million 2011 Shaw Prize in Life Science and Medicine for their work on innate immunity.

The prize was announced in Hong Kong on June 7, and an award ceremony will be held Sept. 28.

"I am very honored to receive this award, recognizing work my colleagues and I carried out at UT Southwestern beginning in the early 1990s," said Dr. Beutler. "We came to understand how the immune system 'sees' microbes as foreign and initiates a response to them. That is where host resistance begins, and also where certain inflammatory diseases begin."

The Shaw Prize was awarded for the "discovery of the molecular mechanism of innate immunity, the first line of defense against pathogens," the announcement said.

"These discoveries have opened doors to advances in many related areas," said Dr. Greg Fitz, executive vice president for academic affairs, provost and dean of UT Southwestern Medical School. "The return of Dr. Beutler to the medical center and the establishment of this new center underscore UT Southwestern's global leadership in accelerating the discoveries of basic research and its applicability to patients. His area of work holds that promise of critical breakthroughs in both science and medicine."

Dr. Beutler, currently Chairman of Genetics at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., began his work on innate immunity in the 1980s at UT Southwestern, where he launched his scientific career as an Internal Medicine intern and Neurology resident.

A faculty member and Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator from 1986 to 2000, Dr. Beutler will return to UT Southwestern to lead the Center for the Genetics of Host Defense later this summer. His original studies at UT S
