Brown Receives Andrology’s Distinguished Service Award
The American Society of Andrology recently presented Terry Brown, PhD, professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, with its 2012 Distinguished Service Award. The award recognizes outstanding contributions in the field of andrology, which is the study of the male reproductive system, urology and infertility.
Brown, who also directs the Bloomberg School’s Office of Academic Integrity, received the award during the group’s 37th annual conference in Tucson, Arizona, on April 22.
“The Distinguished Service Award from the American Society of Andrology is a prestigious honor and it is well-deserved,” said Pierre Coulombe, PhD, E.V. McCollum Professor and chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. “Terry’s contributions to the study of the male reproductive system, particularly regarding age-related changes in the prostate, continue to inspire our entire department.”
Having served as president of the American Society of Andrology from 2007 through 2008, Brown is respected for his work in the field of male reproductive health. Specifically, he has made strides in the study of androgen receptors, age-dependent changes in the prostate and prostate cancer.
Last year, Barry Zirkin, PhD, professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, received the American Society of Andrology's Distinguished Andrologist Award. The American Society of Andrology has more than 775 members globally and aims to foster a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of male reproduction.
