David Baker and colleagues selected for AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize

David Baker, professor of biochemistry, and five of his colleagues at the UW and elsewhere have won the 2003-4 AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize for an outstanding article in the journal Science. The award was presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) last month in Washington, D.C.

Baker co-authored the article, Design of a Novel Globular Protein Fold with Atomic-Level Accuracy, which appeared in the Nov. 21, 2003, issue of Science. It details their work on a computational method for creating proteins not found in nature.

Also honored were Brian Kuhlman, formerly a postdoctoral researcher in Baker's lab and now assistant professor of biochemistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Gautam Dantas, a graduate student in Baker's lab; Gabriele Varani, UW professor of chemistry and biochemistry; Barry Stoddard, member of the Basic Sciences Division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and UW affiliate professor of biochemistry at the UW; and Gregory Ireton, a former graduate student in Stoddard's lab and now a research scientist at the Infectious Disease Research Institute in Seattle.
