UT Southwestern's Olson wins prestigious French award for heart research
Date:6/4/2009

DALLAS June 4, 2009 Dr. Eric Olson, chairman of molecular biology at UT Southwestern Medical Center, has been awarded the Institut de France's prestigious Lefoulon-Delalande Foundation Grand Prize for his work on gene regulation in the cardiovascular system.

The prize has an international reputation as the most prestigious award in cardiovascular research. The award of about $664,000 (500,000 euros) will be presented June 10 in France by French Prime Minister Francois Fillon and the president of the Institut de France.

"I consider this award one of the highest honors of my career," Dr. Olson said. "It's a wonderful recognition of the many scientists in my lab from throughout the United States and around the world who have contributed to this effort. They really deserve the credit."

Much of what is known regarding cardiac gene regulation can be traced directly to Dr. Olson's pioneering work. His research is regarded as a major step in finding genetic targets for treatment of congenital heart defects and adult heart disease, and it has illuminated the fundamental principles of organ formation. Equally important is his demonstration that many of the genes that control heart formation are called into play in the adult heart under pathological stress.

"Dr. Olson's discoveries have provided profound new insights into cardiac development and substantially advanced our understanding of altered cardiovascular function in disease," said Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, president of UT Southwestern. "Dr. Olson exemplifies the scientific creativity of our faculty which serves as the foundation for UT Southwestern's international reputation as a center of research, discovery and innovation."

Dr. Olson studies how the heart and blood vessels form, how they rebuild themselves after injury, and how genetic mutations and stress can cause heart disease. He and his team have discovered networks of genes that orchestrate the formation of t
