  • Jean-Laurent Casanova honored with the Korsmeyer Award | Newswire
    Hospital and an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute will receive a 20 000 grant and present an award lecture at the society s annual meeting in April Jean Laurent Casanova Founded in 1908 the American Society for Clinical Investigation is a nonprofit honor society of physician scientists who have made major contributions to the understanding of human disease The award is named after its first recipient oncologist Stanley J Korsmeyer whose findings shed light on the significant role that the dysregulation of apoptosis or cell death plays in disease The annual Korsmeyer Award is given to members of the society who have advanced knowledge in a specific field and who have mentored young life science researchers Casanova was elected to the society in 2008 Casanova and his colleagues discovered holes in the immune systems of otherwise healthy children that make them susceptible to certain infectious diseases These holes are caused by congenital mutations in a single gene and are responsible for severe and selective vulnerability to illnesses including tuberculosis pneumococcal disease herpes simplex encephalitis and Candida infection This discovery has far reaching clinical implications for patients such as the possibility for genetic counseling as well as the creation of targeted therapies to restore the deficient immune response Casanova received his M D from Paris Descartes University and his Ph D in immunology from Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris While a professor of pediatrics at the Necker Hospital in Paris he cofounded the Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases with his colleague Laurent Abel Casanova joined Rockefeller in 2008 and is the recipient of numerous awards including the E Mead Johnson Award from the Society for Pediatric Research in 2010 and the Robert Koch Award in 2014 In 2015 he was elected both as a foreign
