UMMS researcher Victor Ambros, Ph.D., named co-recipient of 2012 Janssen Award for Biomedical Research
Date:6/19/2012

ological systems work, with the hope that if an understanding was achieved, practical applications would likely emerge," said Ruvkun. "We have seen the small RNA field grow from our first papers to thousands of papers, many focused on particular diseases and treatments of diseases. The research has come full circle from fundamental biology to medicine just as we had hoped."

"The groundbreaking research of Dr. Ambros and Dr. Ruvkun has revolutionized the understanding of gene regulation, with significant implications for future developments in the medical field," said Paul Stoffels, MD, worldwide chairman of pharmaceuticals at Johnson & Johnson. "Perhaps equally important is the spirit of collaboration exemplified by these researchers exactly what Dr. Paul advocated in his own labs. Their success demonstrates that we can achieve so much more when we work together, rather than in silos."

The winners of the Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research are chosen by an independent committee of renowned scientists, including Nobel Laureates and Lasker Prize winners. The Award, which includes a $100,000 prize, will be presented to Drs. Ambros and Ruvkun in a ceremony followed by a scientific symposium at the New York Academy of Sciences in New York on September 7.
