Wyss Institute founding director, Donald Ingber, M.D., Ph.D., receives 2011 Holst Medal
Date:12/16/2011

The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University announced today that its Founding Director, Donald Ingber, M.D., Ph.D., has received the 2011 Holst Medal in recognition of his pioneering work exploring the cellular mechanisms that contribute to mechanical control of tissue and organ development, and his groundbreaking development of bioinspired technologies, ranging from Organ-on-Chip replacements for animal studies, to new engineering approaches for whole organ engineering.

Ingber is also the Judah Folkman Professor of Vascular Biology at Harvard Medical School, Professor of Bioengineering at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and a Senior Research Associate in the Vascular Biology Program at Children's Hospital Boston.

The prestigious annual award was presented today at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven in the Netherlands during a ceremony at the close of the 2011 Holst Symposium. This year's symposium, which focused on integrated heart repair, was organized by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Philips Research, a leading corporate research organization that helps introduce innovations that improve people's lives.

As the medal winner, Ingber also presented the 2011 Holst Memorial Lecture entitled "From Cellular Mechanotransduction to Organ Engineering." Starting with an exploration of the role that cell structure and mechanics play in controlling tissue and organ development, Ingber's lecture extended to provide a more comprehensive overview of his most recent innovations, including development of Organ-on-Chip microsystems technologies that recapitulate human organ functions, bioinspired materials that promote whole tooth organ formation, and injectable programmable nanotherapeutics that restore blood flow to occluded blood vessels.

The Holst award and lecture were established in 1977 to commemorate TU/e's 21st anniversary by honoring the important contributions
