UK researcher earns 2013 Discovery Award
Date:7/29/2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 22, 2013) The Society for Free Radical Biology & Medicine recently named the University of Kentucky's Dr. Allan Butterfield as the recipient of its 2013 Discovery Award.

The SFRBM's Discovery Award is given out every other year to a researcher who has presented significant advancements in the field of redox research. Recipients must be nominated by a SFRBM member with details justifying their consideration. Butterfield was nominated by professor Daret St. Clair of the UK Department of Toxicology, with a seconding letter written by professor Barry Halliwell, from the National University of Singapore.

The Senior Awards Committee evaluated eight candidates that were nominated for the 2013 Discovery Award. Butterfield was recognized for his role as a pioneer in developing and investigating the model of amyloid beta-induced early oxidative stress in the progression of Alzheimer's Disease and Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment. He has been a leader in the field of redox proteomics, having applied these and other tools to unravel relevant targets of brain protein oxidation in neurodegeneration and relevant mechanisms of cancer chemotherapy-mediated cognitive dysfunction. This highly mechanistic and translational work provided relevant contribution as a worldwide reference in this area of investigation.

"Receiving the 2013 Discovery Award from SFRBM is a recognition from my peers for the discoveries and accomplishments from my laboratory in Alzheimer's disease and 'chemobrain,' that reflects the efforts of extraordinarily talented postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates who have been in my laboratory," Butterfield said. "The interactions and collaborations with outstanding scholars at UK and worldwide that I have been fortunate to develop have been instrumental in our laboratory's success that led to this award. I am truly grateful to SFRBM for this recognition. Past recipients of the SFRBM Discov
