Milestones

Awarded:

Sean Brady, a 2007 Beckman Young Investigator Award, for his work in the discovery and study of naturally occurring small molecules and their therapeutic potential. The award, which comes with a grant of approximately $300,000, was established in 1991 by the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation to acknowledge the contributions of tenure-track scientists in the early stage of their research careers.

Joel E. Cohen, the 2007 Pardee Distinguished Lecture from Boston University.

Mitchell J. Feigenbaum, the 2008 Dannie Heinemann Prize for Mathematical Physics. Awarded by the American Physical Society and the American Institute of Physics, the prize recognizes outstanding publications in the field of mathematical physics. The award, which comes with $7,500, will be presented to Dr. Feigenbaum in New Orleans in March.

Named:

In honor of Christian de Duve’s 90th birthday this month, the Institute of Cellular Pathology in Leuven, Belgium — where Dr. de Duve conducted some of his Nobel Prize-winning research in the structure and functional organization of the cell — has been renamed the Christian de Duve Institute of Cellular Pathology.

Jeffrey V. Ravetch, a member of the Institute of Medicine. Established in 1970 as a unit of the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine was founded for the protection and advancement of the biomedical sciences and health professions. The election was announced October 8.
