ar basis for decreased activity in patients with a deficiency of the enzyme.

Colman also has studied two isocitrate dehydrogenases (IDH), which play important roles in heart health. In heart failure, decreases in one of the enzymes are associated with decreased oxidative metabolism and energy production. In contrast, other IDHs play a major role in protecting against oxidative stress in the heart.

Colman's latest recognition augments a long list of honors. Besides her named professorship at UD, she initiated and directed for 16 years the University's Chemistry-Biochemistry Interface Graduate Program, which is supported by the National Institutes of General Medicine and is designed to train new chemists and biologists who can discuss biological and biomedical problems in a common language.

She won the Francis Alison Award UD's highest faculty honor in 1985 for making "the most outstanding contributions to her field of inquiry" and received the College of Arts and Sciences Scholar Award in 2002.

A fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Colman received the Herbert A. Sober Award for outstanding scientific achievement from the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1996, and the Delaware Section of the American Chemical Society Award for Scientific Achievement in 1990. She has chaired the Division of Biological Chemistry of the American Chemical Society and has been a member of the U.S. National Committee for the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She has served on the editorial boards of multiple biochemical journals.

Colman received her bachelor's and doctoral degrees from Harvard University. She served on the faculty of Washington University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School before joining the UD faculty in 1973.
