Spinal cord injury expert to be honored by research foundation
Date:10/18/2007

NEW BRUNSWICK/PISCATAWAY, N.J. Dr. Wise Young, the Richard H. Shindell Professor of Neuroscience at Rutgers University and founding director of Rutgers W.M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience, is receiving the Melvyn H. Motolinsky Research Foundations 2007 Distinguished Service Award.

The award will be presented at the foundations annual meeting Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. in the Conference Center of the Clinical Academic Building at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick.

Dr. Clifton R. Lacy, president of the Motolinsky Foundation, associate professor of medicine at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and adjunct professor at Rutgers University Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, said that Dr. Young was selected to receive the award because of his groundbreaking research in the treatment of spinal cord injury as well as his passionate support of stem cell research. We also recognize the compassion and caring he shows for individuals with spinal cord injury and their families, Lacy said.

Young is a world leader in the area of spinal cord injury and treatment. He is an outspoken advocate for stem cell research, a potential source of nerve cell regeneration therapies for damaged spinal cord tissue and other devastating conditions, such as Parkinsons and Alzheimers diseases. Young is taking a leadership position at home and abroad in gathering support for stem cell research and has carried his strong advocacy to patients and politicians in the state and into the halls of Congress.

Young practices what he calls "compassionate science," focusing on the needs of patients. He personally involves himself with people who have sustained these injuries and their families, holding regular open-house evenings at the Keck Center, where they are updated on the latest research findings and newest therapies.

At the Keck Center, Young assembled a team of researchers w
