Research & Scholarship Award Recipients by Region - May 2, 2007  

 

Capital Region

University at Albany

Dr. T.S. Kuan, Professor, Department of Physics

Dr. Kuan’s research focuses on fundamental performance and evolution limits of copper interconnects used in future generation computer chips, and methods of growing low-defect gallium nitride layers for use in advanced optoelectronic devices.  He has published over 100 papers and delivered numerous invited talks at technical conferences. 

 

A Fellow of the American Physical Society, Dr. Kuan won the IBM Corporation Outstanding Innovation Award for discovery of long-range order in semiconductor alloys.  He has received more than a million dollars of external funding from such sources as the Semiconductor Research Corporation, Defense Advanced Research Project Agency, and the U.S. Office of Naval Research.

 

 

Dr. Conly L. Rieder, Professor, Department of Biomedical Sciences

Dr. Rieder, Chief of the Laboratory of Cell Regulation at Wadsworth Center, has spent his research career studying mitosis, the process by which cells replicate and divide. He has made major advances in discovering and understanding the “spindle assembly checkpoint,” a quality control mechanism that prevents the production of genetically abnormal daughter cells during the division process.

 

This work may have clinical implications, since cancer cells have been shown to often have a defective spindle assembly checkpoint. As Dr. Rieder’s research has expanded in new directions, he continues to make new and exciting contributions to cell biology. These advances not only increase our understanding of basic science, but may also provide novel targets for cancer drug discovery. Dr. Rieder has published 126 peer-reviewed research papers, including 17 with journal covers, as well as 58 review papers, books and book chapters.

Downstate Medical Center

 

 

Dr. Andre Fenton, Assistant Professor, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

Dr. Fenton, working in collaboration with his colleague, Dr. Sacktor's laboratory, identified the only known molecular mechanism for maintaining long-term memory in the brain.  He found that memories up to a month old were erased from the hippocampus of rats by inhibiting a molecule called PKMzeta. PKMzeta also weakened synapses, the connections between neurons, which had been strengthened through a process called long-term potentiation (LTP).

 

This provided key evidence that LTP is the way that information is stored in the brain. To achieve the breakthrough, Dr. Fenton invented a memory task for rats that is a very sensitive test of hippocampus function and refined methods for delivering substances directly to their brains.

 

The work, an elegant set of landmark experiments, identified a fundamental mechanism of memory that scientists worldwide had been seeking for decades. Science magazine hailed the discovery as the only breakthrough in neuroscience in 2006 and the ninth in all of science that year.
