FWCC Distinguished Seminar

Dr. Michael N. Hall is a pioneer in the fields of mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) signaling and cell growth control. In 1991, he discovered TOR in yeast cells. mTOR is a protein kinase activated by growth factors and nutrients, and is a central controller of cell growth and metabolism. mTOR plays a key role in aging and the development of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Insights into mTOR signaling pathways have been applied for new therapeutic strategies.

Dr. Hall earned a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1976, and a PhD in Molecular Genetics from Harvard University in 1981. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institut Pasteur in Paris (1981) and at the University of California, San Francisco (1981-1984). He was appointed an Assistant Professor at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel in 1987 and became a Full Professor in 1992. He was head of the Division of Biochemistry (1995-1998; 2002-2009), Deputy Director of the Biozentrum (2002-2009; 2013-2016), and Director of Basel Signaling Alliance, University of Basel (2009-2017). He is elected Member of the National Academy of Sciences USA, Member of the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences, Member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), and Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). He received numerous awards and honors, including but not limited to the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award (2017), Szent-Györgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research (2017), Canada Gairdner International Award (2015), Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences (2014), and Louis-Jeantet Prize for Medicine (2009).
