Elizabeth Helen Blackburn is an Australian-American researcher who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology for pioneering research that led to the discovery of "telomerase," the enzyme that refills the telomere, a protective structure at the end of chromosomes. Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak, two of her co-researchers, shared the Nobel Prize with her. She has received multiple major medals and distinctions during her career, including America's highest honor, the Albert Lasker Award in Basic Medical Research, and the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. She was also named to the Royal Society of London, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Academy of Microbiology's list of Fellows. She worked in medical ethics for two years, including as a member of the President's Council on Bioethics, but was controversially fired owing to a disagreement with the Bush administration. She's been working on a study that looks at the effects of stress on telomerase and telomeres in recent years, with a focus on mindfulness meditation.

She graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Science in 1970 and a Master of Science in 1972.
