Date:7/29/2013

ery Award are pioneering giants in the field of free radical biology and medicine, so receiving this award is both personally gratifying and extremely humbling to me to be joining such a group of leaders in this field."

Butterfield will give a featured lecture at SFRBM's 20th Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Nov. 20, titled, "Pathogenesis and Progression of Alzheimer's Disease and Potential Mechanisms of Chemotherapy Induced Cognitive Impairment: Roles of Oxidative Stress and Insights from Redox Proteomics." He will also be presented with a cash award, medal and offered an invitation to publish a review article in Free Radical Biology and Medicine, SFRBM's journal.

Butterfield is the Alumni Association Endowed Professor of Biological Chemistry at UK and serves as director for both UK's Center of Membrane Sciences and the UK Markey Cancer Center's Free Radical Biology in Cancer Shared Resource Facility. Additionally, he is a faculty associate for UK's Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center and is a faculty member of UK's Sanders-Brown Center on Aging.

In addition to this year's Discovery Award, Butterfield was named a Fellow of the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine in 2012, one of only 28 Fellows for the Society worldwide. In 1998, he received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring from President Clinton in the White House for his success in educating and training women, persons from Appalachia, and persons of color in the discipline of chemistry, all groups that are nationally underrepresented especially in faculty ranks in chemistry.
