Lelio Orci Award 2022

Date de publication


Congratulations are in order for our director, Prof. Susan M. Gasser! She has been granted the Lelio Orci Award 2022 for her contributions to our understanding of telomeres, the role of nuclear pores for gene expression and DNA repair, and heterochromatin-mediated spatial genome organization.
This award, conferred annually by Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2) since 2015, is granted by the Lelio Orci Fund. It recognizes exceptional achievements in the field of basic cell biology. Prof. Orci, who passed away in 2019, was an outstanding figure in the medical faculty of the University of Geneva, where he taught and conducted research for more than forty years. He was known for his work in electron microscopy, which made it possible to study the relationship between cell structure and function.
The ISREC Foundation is proud to be able to draw on Prof. Susan Gasser’s once again widely acknowledged scientific expertise.
