Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research

With this prestigious scientific award, Johnson & Johnson wishes to honor one or more scientists in academia or in business, who strive(s) to achieve the same high standards as Dr. Paul Janssen did with regard to innovation and leadership.

We are delighted that Douglas C. Wallace, Ph.D., of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine,  has won the Dr. Paul Janssen Award for 2017.


The international selection committee has chosen him for his pioneering discoveries in the field of human mitochondrial genetics and its application to the study of disease, aging, and patterns of human migration.


The ceremony will be followed by a walking dinner.
