William Gelbart, professor of molecular and cellular biology in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, was recently named the recipient of the 2010 George W. Beadle Award from the Genetics Society of America (GSA).

Gelbart, a developmental geneticist whose research focuses on understanding the molecular basis of pattern formation in higher-order animals, is among five GSA award winners this year who have been nominated and selected by their peers “in recognition of the exceptional value of their work to promote further understanding within the field of genetics.”
