2008 Bruce M. Spiegelman, Harvard University, USA

Bruce Spiegelman is professor at the Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School and at the Department of Cancer Biology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Dr Spiegelman received his PhD from Princeton University in biochemistry in 1978 under the mentorship of Marc Kirschner. He carried out post-doctoral training between 1979-1982 at the Department of Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Howard Green. He joined the faculty of Harvard Medical School in 1982 where he is currently professor of Cell Biology and Cancer Biology since 1993.

His research interest is centered on the molecular basis of cell differentiation and tissue development, using adipogenesis as a model system. He is also interested in the biochemical mechanisms of metabolic diseases relating to adipogenesis, especially obesity and insulin-resistant diabetes (NIDDM). In addition, his laboratory has a major interest in trying to alter cancer cell growth by stimulating pathways of terminal differentiation.

He has received many awards and honors for his work. Among others he has been an established investigator of the American Heart Association 1987-1992. He is the recipient of the MERIT Award from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Disease, NIH, the Heinrich Wieland Prize for Lipid Research, the Bristol Myers Squibb Award for Distinguished Achievement in Metabolic Disease and the Elliot Joslin Medal from the Joslin Diabetes Center. He was elected to the United States National Academy of Sciences in 2002 and as a Foreign Associate of the European Molecular Biology Organization in 2006. He has published over 200 papers.
