Buck Institute Researcher Honored With International Award

The Olav Thon Foundation, Norway's largest charitable organization, has awarded its first international research award in the medical and natural sciences field to Novato-based Buck Institute for Research on Aging faculty member Judith Campisi and Tel Aviv University professor Yosef Shiloh.

Campisi, of Berkeley, was recognized for her pioneering work on the connection between aging and cancer and the process of cellular senescence, which is linked to chronic inflammation. The prize money, about $660,000, was split between Campisi and Shiloh. Campisi will go to Oslo, Norway to receive the award at a March 5 ceremony.

Campisi is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the recipient of numerous awards including the Longevity Prize from the Ipsen Foundation.
