Congratulations to Hiromi Sesaki, Ph.D. who was chosen as one of the two winners of the 2016 Hamilton Smith Award for Innovative Research.


Hiromi Sesaki, Ph.D.

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.
