Migrations

GE Healthcare last week said that Jean-Luc Vanderheyden has joined the company to lead its Molecular Imaging business.

In his new role, Vanderheyden will report to the general manager, to be named at a later date.

Prior to GE Healthcare, Vanderheyden was the vice-president of research and development for Theseus Imaging and director of nuclear medicine research and development for Mallinckrodt/Tyco Healthcare. He was also a visiting associate professor in nuclear medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.


Columbia University awarded the 2005 Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize to Ada Yonath, the university said last week.

Yonath is the Martin S. and Helen Kimmel Professor of Structural Biology and director of the Helen and Milton A. Kimmelman Center for Biomolecular Structure at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.

The Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize has been awarded annually since 1967 for research in the fields of biology and biochemistry.

Yonath has also received the National Institutes of Health Certificate of Distinction, the F.A. Cotton Medal for Excellence in Chemical Research, the 2000 Anfinsen Prize, the 2002 Harvey Prize for Natural Sciences, the 2002 Israel Prize for Chemical Research, the 2004 Massry Prize, and the 2004 Paul Karrer Gold Medal.

Upstate has released a new Beadlyte 8-Plex multi-pathway signaling kit, Phosphoprotein. The kit enables researchers to perform simultaneous quantitative detection of multiple cell signaling pathways in a single 5µl (5µg) cell lysate sample, according to Upstate. Phosphoproteins measured include key markers of receptor tyrosine kinase, stress induction, and death receptor pathways.
