NIDCD Director James F. Battey, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., received the 2009 Kerry-Manheimer Award given by the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia.
Established in 1976, the Kerry-Manheimer Award recognizes the career contributions of outstanding researchers in the chemosensory sciences. The honoree is selected by the Monell Center’s faculty.
Dr. Battey, who is also vice-chair of the NIH Stem Cell Task Force, received the award on October 14 when he delivered a lecture to Monell’s scientists on “NIH Guidelines for Human Stem Cell Research.” The lecture focused on the Presidential Executive Order to remove barriers to responsible research involving human stem cells.
