on diverse communities.

The 2009 Khalid Iqbal Lifetime Achievement Award was awarded to Virginia M.-Y. Lee, Ph.D., M.B.A., director of the Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine. Dr. Lee's research focus includes determining the genesis and roles of various normal and abnormal brain proteins (amyloid, tau, etc.) thought to be the keys to the cause and progression of numerous brain diseases, including Alzheimer's.

The 2009 Bengt Winblad Lifetime Achievement Award was awarded to Martin Rossor, M.D., head of the Division of Neurology and Director of the Dementia Research Centre at the UCL Institute of Neurology and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London. Dr Rossor's research includes studying familial Alzheimer's disease and familial frontotemporal lobar degeneration. Longitudinal studies of at risk individuals from affected families has helped identify the first clinical and imaging changes that signal the onset of disease.

Zaven Khachaturian Award

At ICAD 2009, William R. Markesbery, M.D., was recipient of the 2009 Zaven Khachaturian Award. This award, named in honor of Zaven Khachaturian, PhD, consultant, lecturer and author, recognizes an individual whose compelling vision, selfless dedication and extraordinary achievement has significantly advanced the field of Alzheimer science.

Dr. Markesbery is professor of Pathology and Neurology at the University of Kentucky, College of Medicine, and director of the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging. He has been a leader in uncovering the step by step development of Alzheimer's and the chain of events that leads to the disease. His research also includes studies of free radicals and other oxidative damage in Alzheimer's, and the various changes that happen in the brain in normal aging, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer's.
