thousands of women worldwide," says Kevin J. Cullen, M.D., the Marlene & Stewart Greenebaum Distinguished Professor in Oncology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and director of the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center. "The development of this class of drugs is arguably one of the most important therapeutic advances in treating women with breast cancer in the last quarter century."

E. Albert Reece, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A., vice president for medical affairs at the University of Maryland and the John Z. and Akiko K. Bowers Distinguished Professor and Dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, says, "Dr. Angela Brodie's research into aromatase inhibitors is an excellent example of translating discoveries in the laboratory into therapies that improve the lives of patients. She never gave up on her vision of finding a new treatment with fewer side effects, and many women around the world have benefitted from her perseverance. Dr. Brodie richly deserves this honor. We are most fortunate to have her as an esteemed member of our faculty."

Dr. Brodie has received numerous honors for her research, including the prestigious Charles F. Kettering Prize from the General Motors Cancer Research Awards in 2005, the Dorothy P. Landon-AACR Prize for Translational Cancer Research in 2006, and the Brinker Award for Scientific Distinction from the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 2000. She has published more than 200 papers in peer-revised scientific journals. She is continuing her work with aromatase inhibitors and has expanded her research into prostate cancer, collaborating with Vincent C.O. Njar, Ph.D., professor of pharmacology at the School of Medicine, on a new androgen synthesis inhibitor. The drug has been tested in a Phase I clinical trial, with preliminary results showing it is well tolerated and reduced PSA levels in most patients.
