International prize for Pere as an emerging leader in science

He is one of only three researchers from non-American institutions – UB/IBEC, Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research, and the Max Plank Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics – to be awarded this year.

The selection committee, which was chaired by ASCB member Sue Biggins of Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, said that they were particularly impressed with the quality of Pere’s independent research and his groundbreaking science.

The award ceremony will take place at the ASCB’s Annual Meeting in San Francisco on December 3rd.
