GSA bestows Robert W. Kleemeier Award to University of Texas Health Science Center's Smith

he Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. James R. Smith of the University of Texas Health Science Center as the 2004 recipient of the Robert W. Kleemeier Award. This distinction is given annually to a GSA member in recognition for outstanding research in the field of gerontology.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 57th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 19th-23rd, 2004 in Washington, DC. The actual conferral will occur on Monday the 22nd at 12:15 p.m. in Salon 1-M of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among gerontological health care clinical, administrative, and research professionals.

Dr. Smith is currently the editor of GSA's Journal of Gerontology: Biological Sciences and is recognized nationally and internationally for his contributions to the understanding of the basic biology of aging. He has been a leader in the field of cellular senescence for over 30 years. In fact, he has been highly successful in obtaining federal funding for his research. For example, he has been the director of a program project grant on cell senescence for the past 18 years.

More recently, his work has focused on the role alterations in chromatin structure play in cellular senescence, which is now a particularly hot area of research in molecular biology.

The award, created in 1965, is in memory of a former president of the society whose contributions to the quality of life through research in aging were exemplary. The winner traditionally presents a lecture at the Annual Scientific Meeting the following year. The Kleemeier Award Lecture is traditionally one of the conference's highlights.
