Date:7/22/2014

hepcidin's effects, regulation, and mechanism of action in iron metabolism. Dr. Ganz's scientific approach is based on diverse, sophisticated, and elegant experimental approaches, ranging from molecular analysis of gene and protein regulation in cell lines and transgenic mice, to histopathologic studies and assays of samples from human patients and experimental animals.

Dr. Ganz currently serves as Professor of Medicine and Pathology at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where he also serves as Director of the Will Rogers Pulmonary Research Laboratory and Co-Director of the Center for Iron Disorders. He earned his PhD in Applied Physics from the California Institute of Technology and his medical degree from UCLA. After completing both his residency in internal medicine and fellowship in pulmonary medicine at UCLA, Dr. Ganz joined the UCLA Department of Medicine in 1983 and has remained there ever since.

The importance of Dr. Ganz's work is evidenced through the publication of his research in many high-impact journals, his involvement in prominent organizations, and his receipt of several prestigious awards. Dr. Ganz is a past president of the International BioIron Society and the recipient of its 2005 Marcel Simon Award for excellence in the research of genetic hemochromatosis. In 2006 he was elected to the American Association of Physicians. Dr. Ganz is also a past recipient of the UCLA Medical Alumni Association Medical Science Award. For many years he served as an Associate Editor of Blood, the journal of the American Society of Hematology.

"Through his discovery of hepcidin and subsequent study of its mechanism of action, Dr. Ganz has revolutionized the field of iron biology and has transformed the way scientists and clinicians study and treat iron and anemia-related diseases," said 2014 ASH President Linda J. Burns, MD, of the University of Minnesota. "ASH is pleased to be honoring Dr. Ganz for his work that h
