2011 HFSP Nakasone Award for Michael Elowitz of Caltech
Date:3/31/2011

The Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) is pleased to announce that the 2011 HFSP Nakasone Award has been conferred upon Michael Elowitz of the California Institute of Technology for his pioneering work on the importance of noise in gene expression as a source of biological variation. The HFSP Nakasone Award was established to honour scientists who have made key breakthroughs in fields at the forefront of the life sciences. It recognizes the vision of former Prime Minister Nakasone of Japan in the creation of the Human Frontier Science Program. The recipient will give the HFSP Nakasone Lecture at the annual meeting of HFSP awardees to be held in Montreal, Canada in June 2011.

Michael Elowitz is Professor of Biology, Bioengineering and Applied Physics, Bren Scholar and Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigator. His work has been honoured by many awards, including the Presidential early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the most prestigious award given by the U.S. government to early career scientists.

Cells must function reliably despite inherent stochasticity, or noise, due to the small copy number of their components. Prior to Dr. Elowitz's work, such cellular noise was treated as a mysterious property, or a nuisance, with no clear way of evaluating its extent and functional impact. Dr. Elowitz's work introduced the conceptual and experimental tools to detect gene expression noise and distinguish it from other sources of variability, to quantify its level, and to evaluate its effect on cellular function. Genetic noise is now considered a core aspect of biology, that functions actively in diverse cellular functions, including differentiation, regulation, and evolution.

The impact of this insight is profound. Noise has gone from being a curiosity of cellular life to a key process whose effects must be considered in almost any analysis of biological systems. Thus, stem cell differentiation and reprogr
