ASM Honors Joseph DeRisi

The 2009 American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Eli Lilly and Company Research Award is being presented to Joseph L. DeRisi, Ph.D., Howard Hughes Medical Investigator and professor, Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco. This award recognizes fundamental research of unusual merit in microbiology or immunology by an individual on the threshold of his or her career.

Dr. DeRisi is honored for his work in advancing the basic technology and informatics for DNA microarrays and using these tools to investigate basic biological regulatory mechanisms. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University and is credited with developing custom microarrays to study the molecular biology of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. His first papers in this area established the paradigm for how arrays can be used to study global changes in gene expression accompanying changes in physiological conditions. His analysis of the changes accompanying the shift from fermentation to respiration was the first paper of its kind and remains one of the most insightful analyses of its type.
