Diversity award bestowed upon University of Colorado-Denver med school professor
Date:4/7/2011

BETHESDA, Md., April 7, 2011 The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has named Arthur Gutierrez-Hartmann, a professor at the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado-Denver School of Medicine, the winner of its inaugural Ruth Kirschstein Diversity in Science Award. Gutierrez-Hartmann will present his award lecture, titled "The Role of the ETS Transcription Factor ESE-1 in Breast Cancer," at 9:03 a.m. Sunday, April 10, in Ballroom C of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., as part of the Experimental Biology 2011 conference.

The award was established to honor an outstanding scientist who has shown a strong commitment to the encouragement of underrepresented minorities to enter the scientific enterprise and to the effective mentorship of those within it.

"Arthur has been tireless in his efforts, giving freely of his time to help numerous [underrepresented] and disadvantaged students as they progress through the key transitions in their careers in biomedical sciences," explained John D. Baxter of The Methodist Hospital Research Institute in the Texas Medical Center in support of Gutierrez-Hartmann's nomination. "Being a Mexican-American physician-scientist who has firsthand knowledge of the disadvantages and prejudices that [underrepresented minority] trainees must overcome has given him insights that resonate with trainees he mentors."

Sonia C. Flores, a colleague at the Anschutz Medical Campus, emphasized how scarce role models like Gutierrez-Hartmann were back when she was a trainee and how important his efforts are for trainees today: "As a woman from Puerto Rico I commend his unwavering commitment to the advancement of not only ethnic minorities but women in science. Arthur is always gentle, always right and always finds the time to tell every student what they need to accomplish."

Gutierrez-Hartmann completed his bachelor's degree at the University of Texas at A
