Nobel Laureate to Deliver Keynote Address at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

"Cell Cycle" Meeting Attracts Two of Three 2001 Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine

Sir Paul Nurse, a 2001 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, will deliver the Keynote Address on Wednesday, May 15 at 7:30 pm at the sixth biennial Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory "Cell Cycle" Meeting. Nurse is a research scientist and Director General of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London. The title of his Keynote Address is "Controlling the Cell Cycle."


Some 350 of the top cell cycle researchers from around the world will gather May 15 through May 19 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for the Cell Cycle meeting. The cell cycle comprises the complex set of events that govern how cells multiply. Defects in control of the cell cycle lead to cancer. The meeting will chronicle many of the latest discoveries in the field of cell cycle research.

Along with Leland Hartwell of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Nurse shared the Nobel Prize with Tim Hunt, who will also attend the Cold Spring Harbor meeting. Like Nurse, Hunt is currently at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London. The trio were awarded the Nobel Prize for their independent discoveries of key regulators of the cell cycle.
