Dr. James A. Spudich will be presented the award at the 50th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society.

U.S. Genomics has announced that Dr. James A. Spudich of Stanford University is the recipient of the Company's first annual award for Outstanding Investigator Single Molecule Biology Award.

The award will be presented at the 50th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Biophysical Society Awards Program honors its members by recognizing excellence in biophysics and promoting interaction among life scientists throughout the world.

"Biology happens at the molecular level. Dr. Spudich's research achievements with myosin demonstrate the importance of working at the level of single molecules to discover the basis of fundamental cellular processes," said John J. Canepa, CEO of U.S. Genomics.

"As the pioneer of single molecule biology tools, U.S. Genomics is proud to sponsor an award that recognizes and promotes outstanding contributions in this field. The Biophysical Society Annual Meeting offers a premier venue in which to acknowledge Dr. Spudich's great achievements."

"The Biophysical Society is pleased to recognize Dr. Spudich's longstanding efforts to further the study of the molecular basis of cell motility through single molecule approaches," said Steven M. Block, President of the Biophysical Society.

"U.S. Genomics' award will encourage future exploration and acknowledge excellence in this advanced area of biophysics research."
