Chemical Heritage Foundation and BIO give Biotechnology Heritage Award to William Rutter

PHILADELPHIA June 24, 2003 -- The Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) and the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) presented the 2003 Biotechnology Heritage Award to William J. Rutter at a Plenary Lunch Session of BIO Conference in Washington DC on Tuesday, June 24. 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 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.
