2007 Wistar Institute Science Journalism Award winner announced

(Philadelphia May 10, 2007) The winner of the 2007 Wistar Institute Science Journalism Award is Peter Aldhous, San Francisco bureau chief for New Scientist magazine. He won for a set of articles that investigated important questions in key areas of current biomedical research, including stem cell and bioterror research. For his work, Aldhous will receive a certificate of award and cash prize of $5,000.

The judges praised Aldhous for his meticulous reporting, particularly on two major issues in biomedical research. He conducted an insightful exploration of the limitations of stem cell research, and pointed out the hype put forth by many researchers in the field. His original reporting on dual-use bioterror research made use of public databases to reveal little-known projects that pose potential risks to the public at large. He also reported on an vital but poorly understood aspect of early HIV infection.

Aldhous's winning articles have been made freely available on the New Scientist web site:

Peter Aldhous got his start in journalism in 1989 as a reporter for Nature, shortly after earning a Ph.D. in animal behavior
