Dr. Marshall Shuler receives 2016 Hamilton Smith Award

Congratulations to Dr. Marshall Shuler who was chosen as one of the two winners of the 2016 Hamilton Smith Award for Innovative Research.  

The Johns Hopkins Medical School established this annual award to recognize innovative research by early career faculty members in the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences (IBBS). The award honors Dr. Hamilton (“Ham”) Smith, who, as a young faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Medical School, discovered sequence-specific cleavage of DNA by restriction enzymes, a discovery that initiated a revolution in molecular genetics.
