Two Yale Biologists and three other scientists will receive The Gairdner International Awards, 2006, among the most coveted awards in science, for their exemplary// research on RNAs, cell motility and hormones. The awards will be presented on October 26, in Toronto.

John Dirks, president of the Gairdner Foundation said 'The 2006 awards honor outstanding achievements in our understanding of our cells with major ramifications for cancer, nutrition, auto-immune disease, atherosclerosis and hormone action.'

Joan A. Steitz, Sterling Professor of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, will be honored for her 'discovery of the reactivity of autoimmune sera with nuclear riboprotein particles and elucidation of the rules of small nuclear RNA in gene expression.'

Thomas D. Pollard, M.D., Sterling Professor and chair of Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale will also receive the award. He will be recognized along with Alan Hall, FRS, chair of the Cell Biology Program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York for their 'discoveries related to understanding the cytoskeleton of the cell and the basis of cell motility and its relevance to human disease.'
