La Jolla Institute scientist Klaus Ley receives Malpighi award
Date:10/25/2010

SAN DIEGO (October 25, 2010) Klaus Ley, M.D, a scientist at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology, was recently awarded the prestigious Malpighi Medal at the World Congress for Microcirculation in Paris, France. A lifetime achievement award presented by the European Society for Microcirculation, Dr. Ley received the honor in recognition of his pioneering endeavors in vascular immunology, a scientific discipline that he helped to pioneer, which looks at novel immune-based approaches to combating heart disease. He is only the 17th recipient of the biennial award worldwide.

Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D., La Jolla Institute president & chief scientific officer, said the award comes as no surprise. "Dr. Ley is undeniably one of the top researchers in the world in vascular immunology," he said. "His contributions to better understanding of inflammation's critical role in heart disease have been vast and have led to new diagnostics and potential treatments for arterial diseases."

In announcing the award, the European Society for Microcirculation noted that it "honors researchers who are active in the field and stand out through their publications and scientific contributions, service to the entire field of microcirculatory and vascular biology research, and by their promotion of younger scientists." Dr. Ley was also asked to present the Malpighi lecture during the World Congress as part of the award.

Dr. Ley, who heads the La Jolla Institute's Division of Inflammation Biology, said he was honored to receive the Malpighi award. "It was really exciting to join this group of 17 highly respected scientists."

Dr. Ley's most significant discoveries over the years, related to heart disease, were in three major scientific areas: molecular mechanisms, biomechanics and methods development. In molecular mechanisms, Dr. Ley was one of the early discoverers of the "leukocyte adhesion cascade," a sequence of molecular ev
