The SPS will officially present the award at the 13th SPS Annual Meeting in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.  As part of the ceremony, Dr. Brown will present a talk entitled, "Predicting Cardiac Safety: From Molecules to Man" on Thursday, September 19, 2013 from 11:30–12:00 at the Congress Centre de Doelen in Rotterdam.

Dr. Brown's establishment of ChanTest in 1998 allowed pharma and biotech companies to outsource important and unique safety pharmacology studies that have proven difficult and costly to implement "in-house".  To this date, Dr. Brown's lab team at ChanTest continues to provide cutting edge assays that serve the Safety Pharmacology industry.

Dr. Brown collaborates with the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) on cardiac safety issues and he holds nine patents on ion channel pharmacology, therapeutics and devices.

"I am honored to receive this award," said Dr. Brown.  "The Safety Pharmacology Society has played a key role in the making of better and safer medicines by the pharmaceutical industry."
