Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) President & CEO Bruce Stillman has earned the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s (ASBMB) Earl and Thressa Stadtman Distinguished Scientist Award. The ASBMB honored Stillman for outstanding achievement in basic research. His discovery of Origin Recognition Complex proteins revolutionized the study of DNA replication.

Founded in 1906, the ASBMB is an international nonprofit organization. The Society advocates for increased funding for basic research and science education. They also work to promote understanding of the molecular nature of life processes. Their membership includes over 11,000 students, researchers, educators, and industry professionals.

“I am honored to be recognized by the ASBMB and join the highly accomplished scientists who previously have received this prestigious award,” Stillman says. “Basic research is the backbone of the cutting-edge science conducted at CSHL. It has led to many fundamental discoveries later applied to improve human health and well-being.”

CSHL appointed Stillman CEO in 1994 and president in 2003. He has been a member of the ASBMB since 1991. Stillman has also been elected to the Royal Society, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Australian Academy of Science.
