Scientists receive awards, give lectures at the ASBMB/IUBMB meeting

Seven distinguished scientists - recognized as international leaders in their fields - will be given awards during the annual meeting of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)/ International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) in Boston June 12-16. As part of the individual award ceremonies, each of the scientists will give a lecture describing his or her work and how it will affect the future of science.

Dr. Steven Almo, of the Department of Biochemistry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, will give the ASBMB-Amgen Award lecture at 4:45 p.m. Monday, June 14. He speaks on the structural basis for T-cell costimulation. Dr. Almo is known worldwide for developing a unique program in the fields of the structural biology of the cytoskeleton and the structural basis for the immune response. His group solved the structures of the molecules responsible for attenuating the T cell response. In an "atoms-to-animal" research strategy expected to serve as a paradigm for future structural biology studies, he is now involved in research that will ultimately be expressed in a knockout/transgenic mouse model to provide the first in vivo structure-function correlations for the costimulatory molecules.

Dr. Sunney I. Chan, of the California Institute of Technology, will receive the William C. Rose Award in honor of his outstanding contributions to biochemical and molecular biological research and his demonstrated commitment to the training of younger scientists. Dr. Chan's own recent research interests have been broadly based in the area of physical biochemistry, with particular emphasis on bioenergetics and the structure and function of membrane proteins, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and bioinorganic chemistry. The award honors both his research achievements in these diverse fields and the many ways he has enriched the life of Caltech undergraduate and graduate students. He speaks on cytochrpme c oxidase and th
