Date:9/20/2012

LA JOLLA, Calif., September 20, 2012 Thomson Reuters has selected Erkki Ruoslahti, M.D., Ph.D., cancer researcher and distinguished professor at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (Sanford-Burnham), as one of its 2012 Citation Laureates. Citation Laureates are scientists that Thomson Reuters has predicted to win the Nobel Prize.

Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates are chosen based on how frequently their research has been cited by other researchers. Many studies have shown a strong correlation between citations and regard by one's peers, a factor often reflected in major professional awards. Using this quantitative approach, Thomson Reuters has made many correct predictions; in the past 10 years, 26 Citation Laureates received Nobel Prizes. The 2012 Nobel Prize recipients will be announced beginning October 8.

He was one of the early pioneers in research on cell adhesionthe study of how cells stay in place by sticking to one another and to their surrounding environments. Ruoslahti's work has clarified many of the fundamental mechanisms responsible for clinically relevant problems, including blood clotting, immune cell homing, and tumor metastasis. His research spawned many drug-discovery programs around the world aimed at finding new treatments for arterial restenosis, thrombosis, cancer, and moresome of which have resulted in FDA-approved drugs.

In addition to his research, Ruoslahti distinguished himself through the leadership and vision he provided during his 13 years as president and chief executive officer of Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (1989-2002). Under his direction, Sanford-Burnham's National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Cancer Center became one of the leading basic cancer research centers in the world.
