Dr. Nusse was one of five recent recipients of the Canada Gairdner International Award for pioneering work on the Wnt signaling pathway and its importance in development, cancer and stem cells announced on March 31, 2020. Among Dr. Nusse’s contributions is the original discovery of the first Wnt gene (together with Harold Varmus) as an oncogene in mouse breast cancer. Afterwards Dr. Nusse identified the Drosophila Wnt homolog as a key developmental gene, Wingless. This led to the appreciation of the links between normal cell development and cancer when these pathways are dis-regulated. Dr. Nusse used the fruit fly (Drosophila) genetics to elucidate the function of beta-catenin as a mediator of Wnt signaling and the Frizzleds as Wnt receptors, work done in collaboration with Jeremy Nathans.
