Dennis Gilbert, Lubert Stryer

Dennis Gilbert has resigned as chief scientific officer and vice president of research at Applied Biosystems, according to an ABI spokesman who confirmed via e-mail that Gilbert left the company as of Aug. 1 to “pursue other career interests.”

Lubert Stryer, a professor of cell biology at Stanford University and chairman of Affymetrix’s scientific advisory board, was awarded the 2006 National Medal of Science in a ceremony at the White House on July 27. Stryer won the award for “his many contributions to molecular biology and biochemistry over the past four decades,” Affy said last week.
Stryer has “made many landmark contributions in fluorescence energy transfer, light-directed chemical synthesis, and vision research and signal transduction,” the company said. Stryer was also a co-author of “the first description of microarray technology” in Science in 1991.
