(BOSTON) – Jay Teich, former Seahorse Bioscience CEO, will receive the first ever CEO Innovator Award from the Society for Redox Biology and Medicine (SFRBM). This international award will annually recognize industry leaders who have transformed the face of scientific research in the areas of redox biology and medicine. Teich will receive the award in Boston on November 20, 2015, during SFRBM 2015, the premier event for cutting-edge research in all aspects of redox biology. Seahorse was acquired by Agilent Technologies on Nov. 1; Teich is now general manager of the Seahorse team at Agilent.
“Led by Jay, Seahorse Bioscience has been an industry leader for many years, developing innovative technologies so many others strive to achieve,” said SFRBM president Neil Hogg, Ph.D. “We are thrilled to recognize this achievement and look forward to seeing the next chapter of scientific breakthroughs as Seahorse becomes a part of Agilent.”
Seahorse Bioscience's unique technology is the perfect complement to Agilent's market-leading separations and mass spectrometry solutions. The combination of these two platforms will give scientists a more comprehensive and faster path to researching the most challenging diseases affecting humankind, including a greater understanding of redox biology, the study of electron flow through biological circuits, sensors, and switches, applicable in many areas critical to human health including cancer, heart disease, aging, cardiovascular disease and obesity.
“I am honored to receive the SFRBM CEO Innovator Award on behalf of my colleagues at Seahorse Bioscience,” said Teich. “We are committed to developing instruments and assay kits for measuring cell metabolism, tools that provide scientists a better understanding of mitochondrial function and disease.”
Founded in 1987, the Society for Redox Biology and Medicine (http://sfrbm.org) is an international organization of 1,200 scientists, investigators and clinicians who conduct research in the area of redox biology. These areas have shown explosive growth over the last decade and are now integral to major initiatives in basic, applied and translational research, including development of new therapies in cancer, heart disease, aging and cardiovascular disease.
