UT Southwestern scientist honored among best in Texas research

Dr. Michael Rosen, a professor of biochemistry at UT Southwestern Medical Center, is one of three individuals being recognized today as rising research stars in the state by the Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas. Dr. Rosen, who studies the structure and function of biological molecules, received one of the inaugural Edith and Peter O'Donnell Awards from the academy at its annual conference in Houston. The awards honor outstanding, up-and-coming researchers in science, medicine and engineering and their work. Each award consists of a $25,000 honorarium, a citation and an inscribed statue.

Dr. Rosen, an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, received the award for science. Drs. Yueh-Lin Loo, assistant professor of chemical engineering at the University of Texas-Austin, and Gerard Karsenty, professor of molecular and human genetics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, accepted the honors for engineering and medicine, respectively.

"Edith and Peter O'Donnell have provided scientific leadership in Texas for decades," Dr. Rosen said. "Their insights and generosity have played a decisive role in bringing our institutions to international prominence. I am deeply honored to be chosen by the Academy to receive this award in their name."

The Edith and Peter O'Donnell Award is named for the Dallas philanthropists who have been ardent supporters of biomedical, engineering and scientific research and education in Texas.

Dr. Rosen's research focuses on the smallest of skeletons, which are found inside every cell. The so-called cytoskeleton is responsible for helping cells move, change shape and respond to various environmental cues. The elongation of growing nerves in the right direction, for example, is dependent on adjustments in the cytoskeleton, while the cytoskeleton of immune cells can change rapidly, allowing th
