2001 Gruber Genetics Prize Citation

Rudolf Jaenisch, Member, Whitehead Institute, and Professor of Biology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has made fundamental contributions to our knowledge of genome function and regulation. A relentless experimentalist, he has broken barriers by revealing the nature of normal and abnormal mammalian development. Using his insights into epigenetic modification, he has provided a scientific basis for better understanding the risks of human cloning.
