Cold Spring Harbor Laoratory president wins Curtin Medal

Cold Spring Harbor, New York -- Bruce Stillman, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) President and Cancer Center Director, has just returned from a trip to his native Australia with a new medal for excellence in medical research and a new description for his research career - DNA Sleuth. While leading a world-renowned scientific research and education institution with over 1000 employees on Long Island, Stillman continues to do his own award-winning research on DNA replication in cells.

"Professor Stillman's work brings us a step closer to understanding and developing tools to defeat the diseases of our time," said Professor Judith Whitworth, Director of the John Curtin School of Medical Research at the Australian National University (ANU) who presented the Curtin Medal for Excellence in Medical Research. His research at CSHL focuses on DNA replication, a process that ensures accurate inheritance of genetic material from one generation to the next.

Stillman's work on cell division has formed the building blocks for understanding illness, particularly cancer. His work has also contributed to our knowledge of the mechanisms which control DNA replication of human viruses, as well as the processes that ensure accurate replication of the human genome and its associated protein structures, or nucleosomes.

"At CSHL we are always pushing the frontiers of genetics and molecular biology to understand and alleviate the causes of human suffering in diseases like cancer and autism. I'm proud to be President, but perhaps even prouder that my own research has been recognized by my peers."

Born in Melbourne, Stillman was awarded his Ph.D. from ANU in 1979. He has spent most of his academic career in the United States, succeeding Nobel laureate James D. Watson as Director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in 1994 and becoming President in 2003. His many honors include some of the highest that can be accorded a scientist, inclu
