UT Southwestern's Luis Parada elected to National Academy of Sciences
Date:5/3/2011

odolsky, president of UT Southwestern, said, "Dr. Parada's work has been distinguished by both creativity and rigor. His discoveries into the most basic mechanisms of development have already led to novel paradigms for the treatment of tumors of the nervous system. His election to the National Academy of Sciences is much deserved and a point of great pride for all of us at UT Southwestern."

Dr. Parada graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with a bachelor's degree in molecular biology. He completed his doctorate in biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1985 and served postdoctoral fellowships at the Whitehead Institute in Cambridge, Mass., and at the Pasteur Institute in Paris.

He was head of the Molecular Embryology Section in the Mammalian Genetics Laboratory of the National Cancer Institute before joining UT Southwestern in 1994. He has received numerous honors, including election to the NAS' Institute of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2007 and as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2008. He was named an American Cancer Society Basic Research Professor in 2003.

"Luis is an outstanding scientist, and this recognition is richly deserved by virtue of his many, many contributions to basic aspects of developmental biology and cancer.
