    has identified genes and neural pathways for its actions and has determined how sensory inputs regulate those circuits de Lange is being recognized for research on telomeres illuminating how they protect chromosome ends and their role in genome instability in cancer A native of the Netherlands de Lange identified a protein complex at telomeres called shelterin and has shown how this complex hides the chromosome end from the cellular machinery that detects and repairs broken DNA ends Telomeres undergo erosion in the early stages of cancer development and de Lange s work has clarified how the loss of telomere function generates genome instability and can drive cancer progression The Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences recognizes excellence in research aimed at curing intractable diseases and extended human life Administered by a new non profit organization the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences Foundation the prize is founded by Art Levinson chairman of the board of Apple and former CEO of Genentech Sergey Brin co founder of Google Inc Anne Wojcicki co founder of 23andMe Mark Zuckerberg founder and CEO of Facebook and his wife Pricilla Chan and Yuri Milner founder of the Russian internet company Mail ru The Breakthrough Prizes are a spectacular recognition of Cori s and Titia s work says Marc Tessier Lavigne the university s president The high profile awards not only bring recognition to their scientific accomplishments but they raise the profile of life sciences nationally and reflect greatly on Rockefeller s commitment to breakthrough science I m thrilled to be able to congratulate Cori and Titia on this important honor The Breakthrough awards are to be awarded annually for past achievements in the field of life sciences with the aim of providing the recipients with more freedom and opportunity to pursue even greater future accomplishments Going forward
