Date:3/21/2013

LOS ANGELES (March 21, 2013) The American Society for Andrology (ASA) is presenting its highest honor, The Distinguished Andrologist Award for 2013, to Christina Wang, MD, a Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed) lead researcher who specializes in the study of male reproductive health and disease, it was announced today.

The organization dedicated to the study of male reproduction will present the award to Dr. Wang during its annual meeting April 13 in San Antonio, TX.

In notifying Dr. Wang of the award, the ASA said she has been on the "front line of andrology in both national and international circles for many years" and had "demonstrated outstanding skills as physician caring for patients with reproductive diseases."

It also noted that Dr. Wang has served as "a role model and mentor for a generation of students, residents and fellows," exhibited leadership by serving in key roles in many professional organizations and led basic and clinical research studies on androgen replacement therapy, hormonal male contraceptive development, diet and androgen metabolism, aging in men and environmental effects on sperm quality that are considered milestone investigations.

ASA, which was founded in 1975 to promote scientific interchange and knowledge of the male reproductive system, said Dr. Wang's research made her a "world leader" in the field.

"Congratulations to Dr. Wang for another well-deserved honor in her stellar career as a tireless researcher, physician, mentor, advocate and administrator," said David I. Meyer, PhD, LA BioMed president and CEO. "She has been incredibly productive, publishing more than 280 peer-reviewed articles and 67 book chapters. LA BioMed is a very proud beneficiary of her energy and her dedication."

Dr. Wang joined LA BioMed in 1993 and currently serves as the associate director of the UCLA-Clinical and Translational Science Institute. She
