Hultgren Receives Prestigious Eli Lilly Award

St. Louis, Feb. 25, 1998 -- Scott J. Hultgren, Ph.D., an associate professor of molecular microbiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, will receive the Eli Lilly and Company Research Award from the American Society of Microbiology. The award recognizes basic research of unusual merit in the fields of microbiology and immunology by an investigator under age 40. The society pays special attention to originality and independence of thought.

"Scott Hultgren was considered by a panel of experts to be the most outstanding young microbiologist in the world because of the work he has done on organisms that are important in disease," says Stanley Falkow, Ph.D., president of the American Society of Microbiology and professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine. "He has set a paradigm for approaching structure-function studies in microorganisms."

Hultgren will receive the award plus a $5,000 cash prize during the society's annual meeting in May in Atlanta, Ga. He also will deliver the 1998 Eli Lilly Award lecture. The award is sponsored by Eli Lilly and Company, a global research-based pharmaceutical company headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind.

"I'm very pleased to receive this honor because it's one of the most prestigious awards in our field for younger investigators," Hultgren says. "And I'm honored to be put on the same list as the previous recipients, which include many distinguished microbiologists. I also have had the great fortune to work with extremely talented and dedicated graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and a research technician at Washington University. This award recognizes their outstanding achievements."

Hultgren, who came to the School of Medicine in 1989, studies ways in which bacteria attach to human tissue, a key event in the onset of disease. As a model system, he works with E. coli strains that infect the urinary tract.
