Honors and Awards

Dear Colleagues:

As many of you may know, UCSF's Elizabeth Blackburn, PhD, is in Stockholm this week participating in a series of Nobel Foundation events leading up to today's official ceremony today, at which she was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, along with her co-recipients Carol W. Greider of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Jack W. Szostak of Harvard Medical School. UCSF's main website, ucsf.edu, has been posting updates on her activities in Stockholm, including the video of the Nobel lecture she gave on December 7. http://www.ucsf.edu/nobel/2009/blackburn/.  Today's Nobel ceremony video will be made available as "video on demand" early next week. I am honored to be in Stockholm with Dr. Blackburn, her husband John Sedat, PhD, also a UCSF professor, their son Benjamin and other family and friends. As a scientist, a colleague, a mentor and a woman in science, Dr. Blackburn represents those qualities that distinguish UCSF worldwide. She is an inspiration to me, and I imagine to you, the nation and the world. I offer Dr. Blackburn, The Morris Herzstein Endowed Chair in Biology and Physiology in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, our greatest congratulations on this day of her receipt of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
