Date:3/1/2012

AUSTIN, Texas, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The nonprofit American Botanical Council (ABC) announces that Professor Djaja Doel Soejarto, Ph.D., of the University of Illinois – Chicago (UIC) is the recipient of this year's ABC Norman R. Farnsworth Excellence in Botanical Research Award.

The award's namesake is ABC's co-founding Board of Trustees member, the late Prof. Norman R. Farnsworth, Ph.D. Dr. Farnsworth was a research professor of pharmacognosy and senior university scholar at the College of Pharmacy at UIC. The medicinal plant community lost a champion when he died last year at the age of 81. ABC will continue to present this award each year to a person or institution that has made significant contributions to botanical and/or pharmacognostic research (i.e., research on drugs of natural origin, usually from plants).

Like the renowned individual for whom the award was named, Dr. Soejarto is a professor of pharmacognosy in the department of medicinal chemistry and pharmacognosy at the College of Pharmacy at UIC. He also teaches biology in UIC's department of biological sciences.

"My immediate reaction on receiving the notification about the ABC Norman Farnsworth Excellence in Botanical Research Award was a downcast feeling, 'Have I done something worthwhile for such an award?'" said Dr. Soejarto. "After a reflection, that feeling soon turned into elation, and thankfulness to the American Botanical Council. All my significant accomplishments during the past 30 years have been associated with Norman Farnsworth. Specifically, I have accomplished my professional successes because of the mentorship of this great Professor" (e-mail communication, February 24, 2012).

"The Farnsworth Award's being granted to Prof. Soejarto is particularly poignant this year," said ABC Founde
