Wiley Foundation announces recipients of 6th annual Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences

Hoboken, N.J., January 29, 2007 -- Deborah E. Wiley, Chairman of The Wiley Foundation, and Senior Vice President, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., announced today that the sixth annual Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences will be awarded jointly to Dr. F. Ulrich Hartl, Director at the Max-Planck Institute of Biochemistry, in Munich, Germany, and Dr. Arthur L. Horwich, Eugene Higgins Professor of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at the Yale University School of Medicine, and Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Dr. Hartl and Dr. Horwich were chosen for their elucidation of the molecular machinery that guides proteins into their proper functional shape, thereby preventing the accumulation of protein aggregates that underlie many diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

"The Wiley Prize is being awarded to Dr. Hartl and Dr. Horwich for their significant contribution in protein folding," said Dr. Gnter Blobel, Chairman of the awards jury for the Wiley Prize. A John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Professor of Cell Biology at The Rockefeller University, Dr. Blobel was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1999. The Wiley Prize awards jury also includes Dr. Qais Al-Awqati, a physiologist at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. David J. Anderson, a developmental neurobiologist at the California Institute of Technology, Dr. Joan Steitz, a molecular biologist at Yale University, and Professor Kay E. Davies, a human geneticist at the University of Oxford, U.K.

The Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences recognizes contributions that have opened new fields of research or have advanced novel concepts or their applications in a particular biomedical discipline. It honors a specific contribution or a series of contributions that demonstrate significant leadership and innovation. The award, which is given by the Wiley Foundation, includes a $25,000 grant, and the opportunity to present a public lecture at The Roc
