Gladstone founder receives American Heart Association Distinguished Scientist Award
Date:11/14/2011

ducing the risk of heart disease and stroke, presents the AHA Distinguished Scientist Award to those who have had a significant and lasting impact on the fields of cardiovascular research and medicine. Previous recipients of the award include Nobel laureates Roger Tsien, PhD, of the University of California, San Diego and Martin Chalfie, PhD, from Columbia University.

"Dr. Mahley's life-long commitment to finding ways to prevent, treat and cure disease has been an inspiration to Gladstone scientists for decades," said R. Sanders Williams, MD, president of Gladstone. "We can think of no better choice for the AHA Distinguished Scientist Award than Gladstone's founding president."

Throughout his career, Dr. Mahley has championed the value of "basic" researchin which scientists focus on advancing our fundamental understanding of biologyto develop cutting-edge treatments that improve human health. He recently developed the Gladstone Center for Translational Research to facilitate the movement of aspects of Gladstone's basic research into therapies that can directly benefit patients. Dr. Mahleywho is also a professor of pathology and medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, with which Gladstone is affiliatedtoday continues to explore the exact role of apoE4 in Alzheimer's. Specifically, he is examining how apoE4 could be modified so as not to influence the progression of this deadly disease.

Several other preeminent organizations have also recognized Dr. Mahley for his contributions to science and medicine. For example, he has been elected to both the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine, two of the highest honors available for U.S. scientists. He also recently received the Builders of Science Award from Research!America for his leadership at Gladstone, which he helped guide into one of the world's leading independent research institutes.
