Speaker: Bruce Stillman
Speaker Bio: Dr. Stillman's research focuses on the mechanism and regulation of duplication of DNA and chromatin in cells, a process that ensures accurate inheritance of genetic information from one cell generation to the next. Dr. Bruce Stillman is President of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. A native of Australia, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree with first class honors at The University of Sydney and a Ph.D. at the John Curtin School of Medical Research at the Australian National University. He then moved to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 1979 and has been at the Laboratory ever since, being promoted to the scientific staff in 1981. Dr. Stillman has been Director of the Cancer Center at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory since 1992, a position he still holds. In 1994, he succeeded Nobel laureate James D. Watson as Director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and was appointed President in 2003. Dr. Stillman is a member of the Medical Advisory Board of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the advisory boards for Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT and the Lewis Sigler Institute at Princeton University and the Board of Scientific Advisors of the National Cancer Institute. He also consults for a number of corporations and foundations. He has too many awards and honors to be mentioned here (they just won’t fit) but among these include election to: The Royal Society (UK), the National Academy of Sciences, the Australian Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
