Warmest congratulations to JoAnne Stubbe – winner of the Pearl Meister Greengard Prize

It’s always cause for celebration when someone you know wins a prize. For the Annual Review of Biochemistry, that person is JoAnne Stubbe, our Associate Editor who has won the Pearl Meister Greengard Prize which recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding women in science.

JoAnne was selected by The Rockefeller University to win this award for her work illuminating the mechanism of ribonucleotide reductase. She is the Novartis Professor of Chemistry, Emerita in MIT’s Department of Chemistry. Wellesley College president and renowned cardiologist and women’s health advocate Paula A. Johnson will present  the award in a ceremony at Rockefeller on Nov. 7 2017.

“It’s an incredible honor to be chosen to receive the Pearl Meister Greengard Prize — especially when I look at the extraordinary list of women who have received this award before me,” Stubbe says. “There were very few women in chemistry during the early years of my career, and while so much has changed, supporting and spotlighting the work of women scientists is still very important. My own mother and grandmother were strong, amazing women who encouraged me to pursue my passions, and I’m grateful to Dr. Greengard for creating such a special tribute to women in honor of his own mother.”

 JoAnne – all of us here at Annual Reviews hope that you enjoy the award ceremony, we thank you for your service to our nonprofit and on behalf of all women in science, we applaud your leadership.

2018 NAS Award for Scientific Reviewing – Call for Nominations in Structural Biology

Annual Reviews is pleased to sponsor the 2018 National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Award for Scientific Reviewing, presented in Structural Biology.

The NAS Award for Scientific Reviewing has been presented annually since 1979 to recognize authors, whose reviews have synthesized extensive and difficult material, rendering a significant service to science and influencing the course of scientific thought. The field rotates among biological, physical, and social sciences.

The NAS Award for Scientific Reviewing was established in 1977 by the gift of Annual Reviews and the Institute for Scientific Information in honor of J. Murray Luck. The award is currently sponsored entirely by Annual Reviews.

The 2018 award recognizes authors who, through their conceptual consideration and review of the field, have both rendered a significant service to science and had a profound influence on the course of scientific thought. This year’s selection committee seeks nominations of those who have written reviews or technical concept pieces that have led to revolutionary advances to the development of methods in the field of structural biology. These areas include, but are not necessarily limited to: X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, nuclear magnetic spectroscopy, small angle x-ray scattering, mass spectrometry, light microscopy, computation, and single molecule studies.

To nominate a review author in the field of Structural Biology, you must submit your application by Monday, October 2nd, 2017.
