Date:10/1/2009

NEW YORK, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Prix Galien USA committee celebrated members of the science and biotechnology industries last night for the development and discovery of drugs and technologies that improve the human condition. Novartis Oncology, Amgen, GlaxoSmithKline and Veridex were honored with the 2009 Prix Galien USA, considered the industry's highest accolade for pharmaceutical research and development, for treatments that could change the course of health care worldwide.

"The 2009 Prix Galien USA winners represent what is possible when basic scientific research translates to drug development and discovery," said Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Prix Galien USA committee chair, NYU School of Medicine research professor of medicine, director of biotechnology study center, and editor-in-chief of The FASEB Journal. "We all benefit from the research that provides new treatments for the millions of cancer patients worldwide and for the patients living with rare blood diseases. Basic research translates into future knowledge and improved health for all of us."

At the gala awards ceremony, the committee presented Barry Bloom, Ph.D., Joan L. and Julius H. Jacobson professor of public health at the Harvard School of Public Health, and Jeffrey Sachs, Ph.D., director of The Earth Institute, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, and professor of health policy and management at Columbia University, with the Pro Bono Humanum Award. Dr. Barry Bloom was honored for his work to support efforts to eradicate disease by understanding the immune responses to infectious diseases. Dr. Sachs was honored for the Millennium Villages, a project which has helped rural African communities and close to half a million people lift themselves out of extreme poverty by providing basic interventions that address needs in business development, food, health, infrastructure and education.
