Baylor's O'Malley to receive Endocrine Regulation Prize
Bert O'Malley, chair of molecular and cellular biology at Baylor College of Medicine, will be the recipient of the 2013 Endocrine Regulation Prize of the IPSEN Foundation.
The prize has been given by IPSEN since 2002. It is awarded to researchers and doctors who have contributed to a better understanding of endocrine and nueroendocrine interactions that regulate the metabolic functions.
O'Mally has been conducting research on steroid hormones, trying to understand how they work on cell nucleus, genes and levels of gene expression. The work has lead to a better understanding of how hormones work in the brain which has helped reproductive medicine and cancer research.
O'Mally's students have gone on to become professors, CEOs and deans in institutions around the world. He is a member of several professional organizations such as the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine. He is currently the head of one of the longest running National Institutes of Health Reproductive Training Grants and Center programs in the country.
The Endocrine Regulation Prize will add to O'Mally's already large collection of awards and accolades. In the past he has won the 2011 Ernst Schering Prize, the Ernst Oppenheimer Award, the Gregory Pincus Memorial Medal, the Lila Gruber Cancer Award, the Borden Award and the Dickson Prize in Medicine, among others.
