Cellular work wins award

Chemical biologist Carolyn Bertozzi has found ways to manipulate processes within living cells and to engineer their surfaces and secreted proteins. For this pioneering research, which is internationally renowned and widely applicable in biotechnology and the pharmaceutical industry, she has been awarded the prestigious 2010 $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize. Bertozzi will receive the prize and present her accomplishments to the public at MIT during the Lemelson-MIT Program's fourth-annual EurekaFest, a multi-day celebration of the inventive spirit, in mid-June.
