The 2011 Fritz J. and Dolores H. Russ Prize is awarded to Leroy E. Hood "for automating DNA sequencing that revolutionized biomedicine and forensic science."
His research on fundamental biology (immunity, evolution, genomics and neurobiology) and on bringing engineering to biology through the development of five instruments—the DNA and protein sequencers and synthesizers and the ink jet printer for DNA arrays—all of these instruments have been commercialized (Applied Biosystems and Agilent).
