UT Southwestern postdoctoral researcher wins international Young Scientist Prize

DALLAS Nov. 20, 2002 Research about the circadian clock, which regulates the body's activities on a 24-hour cycle, has earned Dr. Jared Rutter the Young Scientist Prize for 2002, a prestigious worldwide recognition presented by Science magazine and Amersham Biosciences.

The Young Scientist Prize, established in 1995, is the highest recognition awarded worldwide to a single molecular biology scientist early in his or her career. In addition to the $25,000 grand prize, six researchers from four geographic regions North America, Europe, Japan and all other countries will receive $5,000 awards.

Rutter is a postdoctoral biochemistry researcher at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. The international prize brings added recognition for a gifted, 29-year-old researcher who already has a list of accomplishments to his credit.

Rutter's winning essay on proteins containing a "sensing" module that is involved in regulating the body's clock appears in the Nov. 22 issue of Science.

"As a scientist and researcher, I was impressed with Jared Rutter's study of the circadian rhythms. In fact, all of the winning entries this year really make a researcher, no matter the years of experience, sit back and think," said Andrew Carr, president of Amersham Biosciences. "This prize is dedicated to recognizing the up-and-coming researchers behind the future of molecular science, and this year's winner will clearly have an impact."

Rutter is quick to credit the cooperative efforts of researchers in the laboratory of Dr. Steven McKnight, chairman of biochemistry at UT Southwestern, as playing a big role in his success.

"A lot of my accomplishments are the result of collaboration with other researchers in Dr. McKnight's lab. This was essential to getting the work done," he said. "One of the biggest reasons for my success is the environment of UT Southwestern. It is the main reason I wanted to stay here as a postdoctoral fellow."
