Tony wins 2020 Wiley Prize in Biomolecular Sciences

Tony wins the 19th annual prize together with Clifford Brangwynne of Princeton university and Michael Rosen of the Southwestern University in Texas for their work on defining phase-separated biomolecular condensates. In a statement of the Wiley foundation their work was recognized for…

revealing a new principle for subcellular compartmentalization based on formation of phase-separated biomolecular condensates, a process implicated in both physiological and pathological events

Since 2002 the prize has recognized “breakthrough research in pure and applied life sciences research”. Past prize winners “have been chosen because of their breakthrough research in areas as diverse as genetics, cell motility, folded proteins and siRNA. The impressive list of past recipients includes winners of the Nobel Prize and the Lasker Prize in basic medical research”

Congratulations to Tony, Cliff and Mike and all their coworkers in their labs!
