Alfred Goldberg, cell biology professor at Harvard Medical School (HMS), recently received a $15,000 cash prize as the recipient of the 11th annual Jacob Heskel Gabbay Award for Biotechnology and Medicine from Brandeis University. Goldberg has made fundamental discoveries about protein degradation, including the systems for protein turnover in bacteria and mammalian cells, and for his introduction of proteasome inhibitors, now widely used as research tools in the treatment of multiple myeloma and other hematological cancers.
