(SfRBM) July 15, 2018 - SfRBM's Senior Awards Committee has announced that the recipient of the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award is Daret St. Clair, Ph.D., of the University of Kentucky.

Dr. St. Clair's career is marked by her seminal work on the role of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) in cancer development and therapy. Her research has resolved long-debated questions about MnSOD expression in cancer and has demonstrated that the presence of MnSOD inversely regulates the induction and progression of cancer. Dr. St. Clair's investigations of the mechanisms mediating the unique role of MnSOD are fundamental contributions to the recognition that cancer cells are under higher oxidative stress than their normal cell counterparts. Her studies have elevated the redox biology field to its stature as an important component of cancer research... Read More
