National Institute of General Medical Sciences chief wins prestigious public service award
Date:9/20/2010

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 20, 2010 The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has named Jeremy M. Berg, director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the winner of the nonprofit's 2011 ASBMB Howard K. Schachman Public Service Award. Berg will receive the award this evening at an ASBMB Public Affairs Advisory Committee meeting in Arlington, Va.

"Dr. Berg has been a true champion of investigator-initiated research, which has become all the more important in these financially challenging times," said Suzanne Pfeffer, president of ASBMB and faculty member at Stanford University School of Medicine. "Under his leadership, NIGMS has been wonderfully supportive of the kind of fundamental research that is at the heart of ASBMB."

As head of the NIGMS, a component of the National Institutes of Health, Berg oversees programs for funding biomedical and behavioral research. The $2 billion NIGMS budget supports more than 4,500 grants for research in the areas of cell biology, biophysics, genetics, developmental biology, pharmacology, physiology, biological chemistry, bioinformatics and computational biology. NIGMS also provides leadership in training the next generation of scientists and increasing the diversity of the scientific work force to assure the vitality and continued productivity of the research enterprise.

"Although no one said it would be an easy job being the director of an NIH institute, Dr. Jeremy Berg seems to have taken it on with style," said William Merrick, chairman of the ASBMB public affairs committee and faculty member at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. "A most unusual feature that he has instituted is obtaining feedback from his constituents. He has invited the research community to be a part of the dialogue about how to make the most of NIH dollars."
