Gore Receives SEBM Award
Dr. Andrea Gore, professor of pharmacology and toxicology, has been named a recipient of the 2013 Distinguished Scientist Award presented by the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. The presentation was made at the SEBM annual meeting in April.
She was one of three recipients of the award this year. Other recipients include Dr. George Gao of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Dr. Robert Mallet of the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center.
The Distinguished Scientist Award annually honors SEBM members who have made seminal contributions to biomedical research while also contributing significantly to the advancement of SEBM.
In her research lab, Gore works to understand the neuroendocrine control of reproduction and sex differences in the brain during development and aging. Specifically, her lab investigates hormone actions, especially estrogens, in the brain and interruption of these processes by environmental hormone disruptors.
Founded in 1903, the society is a not-for-profit scientific society formed to promote investigation in the biomedical sciences by encouraging and facilitating interchange of scientific information among disciplines. The principal means for achieving this purpose are the publication of the peer-reviewed journal, Experimental Biology and Medicine, and support of regional and national meetings.
