American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology honors 11 outstanding scientists
Date:7/28/2010

BETHESDA, Md., July 28, 2010 The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology last week named 10 scientists the winners of the nonprofit's annual awards. Another winner was announced earlier this year. The recipients, who will give talks at the society's annual meeting April 9-13 in Washington, D.C., are as follows:

Stanford University professor and Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Axel T. Brunger won the inaugural DeLano Award for Computational Biosciences for his work in structural biology. Established this year, the award aims to honor the legacy of Warren L. DeLano, who embraced the concept of open-source technology, making his programs and source code freely available to prospective users and enabling researchers to build on his technologies. The award is given to a scientist for innovative and accessible development or application of computer technology to enhance research in the life sciences at the molecular level. Brunger's concepts and strategies helped provide the foundation of much of modern structural biology. The award consists of a plaque, a $3,000 cash prize and travel expenses for the recipient to present a lecture at the ASBMB annual meeting.

Michael Brown and Joseph Goldstein, two Nobel laureates from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, have been named the winners of the inaugural Earl and Thressa Stadtman Distinguished Scientist Award. Brown and Goldstein shared the 1985 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology for their discovery of the LDL receptor and the process of receptor-mediated endocytosis, which controls the level of cholesterol in blood and cells. In recent years, they discovered sterol regulatory element binding proteins and the process of regulated intramembrane proteolysis, which maintains the lipid composition of cell membranes. The award was established by friends and colleagues to preserve the Stadtmans' legacies as scientists and mentors. The distinguished
