UT Southwestern leaders to receive national award for medical research accomplishments

DALLAS March 20, 2007 Two Nobel laureates from UT Southwestern Medical Center and their mentor, a distinguished chair of internal medicine at this institution, will receive Research!America's inaugural Builders of Science Award for their achievements in developing UT Southwestern into one of the world's premier research institutions.

Drs. Michael Brown, Joseph Goldstein and Donald Seldin will be honored today in Washington, D.C. at the 11th annual Research!America Advocacy Awards gala.

Research!America is the nation's largest not-for-profit public education and advocacy alliance. Its mission is to make health research a higher national priority, and its awards are given to individuals and organizations that advance that mission.

Drs. Brown and Goldstein shared the 1985 Nobel Prize for their discovery of the underlying mechanisms of cholesterol metabolism. Their findings led to the development of statin drugs, the cholesterol-lowering compounds that are now among the most important widely prescribed medications in the world.

Dr. Seldin, an intellectual cornerstone of UT Southwestern Medical School since the 1950s and chairman of internal medicine from 1952 to 1988, built a department recognized as one of the best in the country. His encyclopedic grasp of medicine and creative energy established a climate at UT Southwestern that attracted superior faculty and ensured an institutional commitment to excellence.

"Research!America's new Builders of Science Award was established to recognize those who have provided inspiration and determination in building an outstanding home for research," said Mary Woolley, president of Research!America. "We are proud to present our inaugural award to Donald W. Seldin and Nobel laureates Michael Brown and Joseph Goldstein for their leadership genius in helping build The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center into the world-class research facility it is today."
