David Sabatini recipient of the 2020 Nemmers Prize

Whitehead Institute Member David Sabatini has been awarded the 2020 Mechthild Esser Nemmers Prize in Medical Science at Northwestern University. The award, given to a physician-scientist whose body of research exhibits outstanding achievement and lasting significance, recognizes Sabatini's landmark discoveries in the area of cell signaling and growth regulation -- in particular his discovery of the mTOR pathway and subsequent insights into linkages between energy, nutrient metabolism, cancer, and aging. Receiving the Nemmers Prize, "has left me in a state of both joy and humility," Sabatini said. "I am so happy to have the outstanding work of my trainees recognized, as they collectively deserve this Prize far more than I do.”
