Rikke set to present the Geron Corporation - Samuel Goldstein Distinguished Publication Lecture

November 05, 2004

The University of Colorado at Boulder's Brad A. Rikke has been chosen by The Gerontological Society of America to receive its 2004 Geron Corporation - Samuel Goldstein Distinguished Publication Award. He is accepting the honor for the selected paper, "Quantitative Trait Loci Specifying the Response of Body Temperature to Dietary Restriction."

The co-authors of this study are John E. Yerg III, Matthew E. Battaglia, and Thomas E. Johnson of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Tim R. Nagy and David B. Allison of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 57th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 19th-23rd, 2004 in San Diego, California. The actual conferral will occur on the Sunday the 21st at 12:15 p.m. in the Wilson A-M room of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among gerontological health care clinical, administrative, and research professionals.

Dr. Rikke is known for his work in mapping and cloning genes in mice that can modulate neurosensitivity to ethanol and general anesthetics.

Established in 1994, the Geron Corporation - Samuel Goldstein Distinguished Publication Award is awarded to the best paper published in the Society's Journal of Gerontology: Biological Sciences for the period of May of the previous year to March of the current year. The paper chosen is selected and determined solely by the editorial board of the Journal of Gerontology: Biological Sciences.

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA), founded in 1945, is the oldest and largest national multidisciplinary scientific organization devoted to the advancement of gerontological research. Its membership includes some 5,000+ researchers, educators, practitioners, and other professionals in the field of aging. The Society's principal missions are to promote research and education in aging and to encourage the dissemination of research results to other scientists, decision makers, and practitioners.
