EMBO Gold Medal 2004 goes to Spanish scientist

The 2004 winner of the EMBO Gold Medal is Mara Blasco, Director of the Molecular Oncology Program at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncolgicas (CNIO) in Madrid. The EMBO Gold Medal is awarded annually to an outstanding young scientist for exceptional research carried out within Europe. Maria Blasco receives the award in recognition of her landmark work in the area of telomeres*. The scientist's research has had a groundbreaking impact on cancer research and received wide recognition in the field. The medal will be presented to the winner at the EMBO Members Meeting, "Frontiers of Molecular Biology", in Vienna on October 15, 2004.

The EMBO Gold Medal highlights the high standards being reached in molecular biology in Europe. Awarded annually to a scientist under 40 years of age, the prize brings the very best young scientists in Europe to the attention of a global audience. Presented for the first time in 1986, the EMBO Gold Medal has had many notable recipients. On hearing the news of her selection, the 2004 winner, Mara Blasco, commented:

"I'm honoured to accept this prestigious award. It's extremely satisfying to gain the recognition of the wider scientific community for my group's research efforts. I'm also delighted to be the first Spanish scientist to receive this prize and as a female scientist, I hope my achievement will inspire other women in science to persevere in their career."

Frank Gannon, Executive Director of EMBO said:

"EMBO is about advancing the biosciences in Europe. This means maintaining quality and momentum in research. One way of doing this is to put a spotlight on the best molecular biologists in Europe. The EMBO Gold Medal highlights the accomplishments of young researchers, showing just what can and is being achieved. Mara is a fine example of this. Her contribution to cancer research is unquestionable and her unstinting dedication makes her the ideal role model for other young researchers."
