For more than three decades, molecular geneticist Stephen J. Elledge, PhD, of Harvard Medical School has been a pioneer in the discovery and characterization of the molecular mechanisms of the DNA-damage response pathway. His findings have been of fundamental importance to the field of molecular biology and have had a profound impact on our understanding of many aspects of human health, including aging, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders.
