Tony wins NOMIS award and is now NOMIS distinguished scientist

The Swiss based NOMIS foundation “…enables outstanding talent to take on high-risk research”. Now they awarded Tony and the lab $2.5 million in recognition of our “contributions to the advancement of science and human progress”. The money is awarded for the project “Phase Transitions and Biological Condensates: An Important New Paradigm for Understanding Disease,” and we will investigate the physical-chemical basis by which intrinsically disordered proteins phase-separate and explore the roles of phase separation in physiology and disease.

Congratulations as well to the other awardees, Ronald Evans from Salk
