Three members named Breakthrough Prize winners


Don W. Cleveland

Kazutoshi Mori

Peter Walter

Don W. Cleveland, Kazutoshi Mori and Peter Walter are among the winners of the 2018 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences.

The prize was established by a group of technology entrepreneurs, including Google co-founder Sergey Brin and Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, to honor outstanding scientific achievement in the life sciences, fundamental physics and mathematics.

The Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences has been awarded since 2013 and honors contributions to understanding living systems and extending human life, including one prize that specifically acknowledges research on neurological diseases.

Don W. Cleveland, professor of cellular and molecular medicine at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer research, is being recognized “for elucidating the molecular pathogenesis of a type of inherited ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), including the role of glia in neurodegeneration, and for establishing antisense oligonucleotide therapy in animal models of ALS and Huntington disease.”

Kazutoshi Mori, professor at Kyoto University, and Peter Walter, professor in the department of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco, both are being honored “for elucidating the unfolded protein response, a cellular quality-control system that detects disease-causing unfolded proteins and directs cells to take corrective measures.”

Each of the winners will receive a $3 million prize, the largest individual monetary award in science.

Oppenheimer wins FASEB BioArt prize

David Oppenheimer is a winner in the 2017 BioArt contest, sponsored by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. Oppenheimer’s winning entry is a video showing the protein profilin twisting and wiggling.

Oppenheimer, a cell biologist and geneticist, is an associate professor in the department of biology at the University of Florida. He is also a creator of the Undergrad in the Lab blog, where he writes in his biography, “My current research interests are focused on the proteins that control cytoskeleton dynamics, and how this influences plant cell shape.” Profilin, found in many organisms, regulates the assembly of structural proteins that form a cell’s cytoskeleton.

Through the BioArt competition, FASEB aims to share the beauty and breadth of biological research with the public. Contestants include investigators, contractors or trainees with federal research funding and members of FASEB societies, including the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Kinzy now VP for research at Western Michigan

Terri Goss Kinzy has been appointed as the new vice president for research at Western Michigan University.

Kinzy was most recently vice president for research at Rutgers, where she oversaw the offices responsible for research and sponsored programs. In her new role, she will help maintain and develop WMU’s research initiatives.

In 1995, Kinzy joined the faculty at Rutgers, where she was a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology and pediatrics. Her research specializes in the areas of gene expression, protein synthesis and drug development.

Kinzy is a member of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s political affairs advisory committee.

She assumes her new role at WMU in the spring 2018 semester.

Milton M. Weiser, former chair of the gastroenterology department at Buffalo General Medical Center, passed away in December at age 87. He had Parkinson’s disease.

Weiser was born in Detroit, the son of eastern European immigrants. He earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Wayne State University before attending the University of Michigan Medical School, where he met his wife, Helen Freedman.

Weiser completed a fellowship in molecular biology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He then worked at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and led the Harvard-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Health Sciences Program.

In 1978, Weiser joined the University of Buffalo as a professor of medicine and biochemistry. He also served as head of research at Buffalo General.

A talented artist, Weiser became one of the first tenants in the Buffalo Arts Studio after he retired in 1998.

Weiser is survived by his wife, two sons, a daughter, a brother and five grandchildren.

Rochester’s Maquat wins Vanderbilt Prize

Lynne Maquat, professor of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, has received the 2017 Vanderbilt Prize in biomedical science.

Established in 2006, the Vanderbilt Prize recognizes female scientists who have contributed significant research as well as served as mentors to other women in science. Winners receive an honorarium, and Maquat will deliver a lecture and be a mentor to Vanderbilt Prize Scholars.

Maquat is highly regarded for her research on RNA metabolism in human disease. She is the founding director of the Center for RNA Biology at the University of Rochester.

In 2003, Maquat founded and has since served as chair of the Graduate Women in Science program, which provides professional aid and development for all graduate women at the university.

Maquat will be honored in November and will speak as part of the Flexner Discovery Lecture Series.

In memoriam: David Burrad Smith

David Burrad Smith, a former professor in the department of biochemistry at the University of Western Ontario, passed away in July at the age of 100.

Born Dec. 6, 1916, in Kidderminster, England, Smith moved to Canada after World War I. He attended the University of British Columbia, obtaining his undergraduate degree in 1939 and his graduate degree in 1941. In 1950, Smith earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Toronto.

Smith worked at Defense Industries Limited from 1941 to 1945. He later served as a lecturer in the department of chemical engineering at the University of Toronto and worked at Canada’s National Research Council.

In 1966, Smith joined the University of Western Ontario as a professor in the biochemistry department. He remained at the university until retiring in 1982 as a professor emeritus.

Smith spent much of his career studying proteins, including significant research on the structure of hemoglobin.

Smith and his wife, Dorothy Westlake, were married for nearly 64 years before she passed away in 2005. They had three children, Stephanie, Janet and Duncan.

In memoriam: David Millhorn

David Millhorn, senior vice president emeritus at the University of Tennessee, passed away in December. He was 72.

A native of Chattanooga, Millhorn received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He later earned his doctoral degree from the Ohio State University.

Millhorn was a professor in the department of physiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and then served as director of the Genome Research Institute at the University of Cincinnati before returning to the University of Tennessee in 2005.

Millhorn joined UT as vice president for research and later assumed the additional role of executive vice president; he was instrumental in developing the university’s research initiatives. He oversaw the university’s contract to manage Oak Ridge National Laboratory and helped plan and develop the UT Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus.

He is survived by his wife, Sherry, and his three daughters, Amy, Emily and Lauren.
