A Rare Feat: Two Scientists At Salk Score NIH New Innovator Awards
Date:9/13/2012

LA JOLLA, Calif., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Salk Institute announced today that researchers Bjorn Lillemeier, and Axel Nimmerjahn, have been named recipients of the prestigious 2012 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director's New Innovator Award.

The NIH Director's New Innovator Award is a highly selective program with hundreds of researchers from the nation's top scientific institutions competing for the award. Only 51 scientists received the honor this year.

Drs. Lillemeier and Nimmerjahn will each receive $1.5 million over a period of five years. They join a group of young investigators who will receive a portion of approximately $155 million to pursue visionary science that exhibits the potential to transform scientific fields and speed the translation of research into improved health.

"It is extremely rare that a scientist would receive such an honor in his career, and even more exciting that an institute is fortunate enough to have two recipients selected for an NIH Director's New Innovator Award at the same time," said William R. Brody, president, Salk Institute. "We are very proud of Bjorn and Axel and grateful for NIH's support of young researchers who pursue innovative and bold science."

Bjorn Lillemeier is an assistant professor in both the Nomis Foundation Laboratories for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis and the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center. He is also the holder of the Rudolph and Sletten Developmental Chair. The New Innovator award will boost his efforts to understand how cellular communication is controlled in space and time. To this end, he develops unique optical microscopy techniques that visualize the molecular organization of plasma membrane signaling in live cells. A main interest of his laboratory is the processing of signals that cause activation or silencing of T lymphocytes during infections and diseases. His research reveals novel signaling mechanisms that can be utilized
