Johnson & Johnson Issues Dr. Paul Janssen Award For Biomedical Research Call For Nominations

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research today opens its 2013 call for nominations. This prestigious award recognizes individuals whose scientific research has made, or has the potential to make, significant transformational contributions toward the improvement of human health. Nominations will be accepted until February 28, 2013 at www.pauljanssenaward.com for consideration by an independent selection committee of world renowned scientists. A $100,000 cash prize will be awarded to the scientist or group of scientists receiving the Award.

The Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research honors Dr. Paul Janssen (1926-2003), who is widely recognized as one of the most productive scientists of the 20th century. Known throughout the scientific community as "Dr. Paul," Janssen was responsible for breakthrough treatments in disease areas including pain management, psychiatry, infectious disease and gastroenterology, and founded Janssen Pharmaceutica, N.V., a Johnson & Johnson Company.

"Johnson & Johnson is pleased to recognize the ground-breaking research being done by dedicated and talented scientists around the world," said Paul Stoffels, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer and Worldwide Chairman, Pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson. "Through the Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research, we honor the inspirational legacy of Dr. Paul, applaud today's researchers, and recognize the potential of scientific and technological advances to transform human health."

In 2012, the Award was presented to Victor Ambros, Ph.D., of University of Massachusetts Medical School, and Gary Ruvkun, Ph.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, for their co-discovery of microRNAs as central regulators of gene expression and development. Their discovery opened new fields of research and has implications for the development of diagnostic tools and medicines.

"Scientific innovation has proven its tremendous value to individuals and society by extending and improving lives," said Dr. Stoffels. "We must continue to celebrate and reward researchers and innovators whose passion and ideas help advance new healthcare solutions that address the needs of people around the world."
