I am delighted to announce that UCSF molecular biologist, Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Ph.D., today was named to receive the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.  Blackburn shares the award with Carol W. Greider of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Jack W. Szostak of Harvard Medical School. Blackburn and her fellow awardees are honored for their discovery of telomerase, an enzyme that plays a key role in normal cell function, as well as in cell aging and most cancers.
