Three of our colleagues have been awarded Nobel Prizes!  The new Laureates are:
-Tomas Lindahl (base excision repair)
-Aziz Sancar (nucleotide excision repair)
-Paul Modrich (mismatch repair)

This is an exciting advance for a field that is of central importance to the EMGS.

EMGS Award Winners

2015 EMGS Service Award

John J. Nicolette, MS, DABT
For leading the development and successful implementation of the Outreach Program as well as long-standing dedicated, generous, and innovative service to the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society.

2015 EMGS Award

Myron F. Goodman, PhD
In recognition of his multiple seminal discoveries concerning molecular mechanisms responsible for accurate and inaccurate DNA synthesis that have contributed to advancements in understanding carcinogenesis, heart disease, heritable birth defects, AIDS, and the development of the immune system.

2015 Alexander Hollaender Award

Miriam C. Poirier, PhD
In recognition of her outstanding research contributions in molecular epidemiology including pioneering the technology and application of immunoassays to assess the human health hazards of polycyclic hydrocarbon exposure, anti-viral AIDS drug treatment, and chemotherapeutic treatment of cancer that have advanced the protection of public health.
