CHF and BIO to present Biotechnology Heritage Award to William J. Rutter

PHILADELPHIA - December 2002 - The Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) and the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) will present the 2003 Biotechnology Heritage Award to William J. Rutter. A biotechnology pioneer, Rutter cofounded Chiron Corporation and directed the Hormone Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), for nearly a decade.

"Leader of a top research institute, cofounder of a pioneering biotechnology company, Bill Rutter is that rare combination of entrepreneurial spirit and high-level management skills so important to the rapid growth of biotechnology both as a discipline and as a global industry," said Arnold Thackray, president of CHF.

The award will be presented at a plenary breakfast at the four-day BIO 2003 Annual Convention, June 22-25, at the Washington, D.C., Convention Center. More than 3,000 scientists and biotechnology leaders are expected to attend the award presentation.

The Biotechnology Heritage Award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the development of biotechnology through discovery, innovation, and public understanding. Walter Gilbert and Phillip A. Sharp were honored in 2002 for founding Biogen, a pioneer company in biotechnology. Both men are Nobel laureates. Francis S. Collins, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, and J. Craig Venter, former president of Celera Genomics, received the award in 2001 for their key roles in the sequencing of the human genome.
