UT Southwestern scientist honored as rising star in Texas research
Date:12/11/2013

DALLAS Dec. 11, 2013 The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST) selected Dr. Richard Bruick, Associate Professor of Biochemistry at UT Southwestern Medical Center, as one of four recipients of the 2014 Edith and Peter O'Donnell Awards, which recognize rising Texas researchers.

Dr. Bruick, who studies factors that affect the critical iron and oxygen balance in cells, will be honored Jan. 16 during TAMEST's 11th annual conference near Austin.

TAMEST presents four Edith and Peter O'Donnell Awards each year in medicine, science, engineering, and technological innovation to recognize Texas researchers whose work exemplifies excellence in advancing understanding of important unmet needs. Each award consists of a $25,000 honorarium, a citation, a trophy, and an invitation to speak at the conference.

"The O'Donnell awards highlight some of the most promising research being carried out in Texas today," said Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, President of UT Southwestern. "In defining some of the most critical determinants regulating basic cell function, Dr. Bruick's discoveries can serve as a foundation for development of new therapeutic paradigms with potential impact in a range of disorders."

Dr. Bruick, honored in the medicine field, researches cellular responses to maintain oxygen and iron homeostasis that have helped lay the foundation for the development of small molecule therapeutics. These hold the potential to provide improved treatments for anemia, renal cancers, and iron overload disorders.

"I am deeply honored to receive this award, which reflects the efforts of many talented lab members and colleagues. I'm incredibly grateful for the support my work ha
