David Julius Wins 2013 Dr. Paul Janssen Award For Biomedical Research

"The past recipients of the Dr. Paul Janssen Award are a remarkable group of scientists, and I am proud to have been selected to join them in accepting this honor," said Dr. Julius. "My research was born out of a fascination with, and desire to comprehend how the body reacts to stimuli from ordinary foods, like chili peppers, with a particular focus on the molecular basis of pain sensation. I am proud that my work may lead to more effective treatments for people living with diseases like arthritis, asthma and chronic pain."

The winners of the Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research are chosen by an independent selection committee of the world's most renowned scientists. The Award, which includes a $100,000 prize, will be presented to Dr. Julius in a ceremony followed by a scientific symposium to take place in September.
