Stephen Jackson

Johann Anton Merck Award Winner 2022; Gurdon Institute, University of Cambridge

Steve Jackson is University of Cambridge Professor of Biology, and Head of CRUK Laboratories at the Gurdon Institute. His research identified key principles by which cells respond to and repair DNA damage and helped define how their dysfunction yields cancer and other age-related diseases. Steve is a member of EMBO, the Royal Society and the UK Academy of Medical Sciences. To translate his science towards medical applications, Steve founded several biotechnology companies, including KuDOS Pharmaceuticals Ltd that – under Steve’s scientific leadership – developed the PARP inhibitor olaparib/LynparzaTM, an innovative first-in-class drug marketed worldwide for certain ovarian, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers.
