2012 Excellence in Science Award

Edward B. Lee, MD, PhD

The American Society for Investigative Pathology has a long tradition of supporting biomedical scientists dedicated to studying the mechanisms of disease, and so I am honored to have been chosen to receive the 2012 ASIP Excellence in Science Award. I have been studying the molecular mechanisms underlying aging-related neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal lobar dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. These are truly devastating diseases with limited treatment options, and we are confronted with the fact that the aging of the American people will only increase the physical, emotional and financial burden of neurodegenerative diseases.


As a member of ASIP since 2004, I have benefited from many discussions, networking opportunities, presentations, courses and meetings organized by ASIP for young scientists. Having served on its membership committee, I encourage other young scientists to become active, participating members of ASIP as we shape the future of experimental pathology. I thank the ASIP for this award and for its support over the years.
