The American Stroke Association honored Shun-Ming Ting, with the Mordecai Y.T. Globus New Investigator Award.

Ting is a PhD candidate at McGovern Medical School and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Houston Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

“I was truly humbled to receive this award, and I am grateful to my advisor Dr. Jaroslaw Aronowski for his guidance and support,” Ting said.

Ting presented his award-winning presentation “Retinoid X Receptors (RXR) Play Essential Roles in Improving Post-ischemic Stroke Recovery in Aged Brain by Restoring Age-associated Dysfunctions of Microglia/macrophages” Feb. 8 at the International Stroke Conference 2023 in Dallas.

The Mordecai Y.T. Globus New Investigator Award recognizes Globus’ major contributions to research in cerebrovascular disease and his outstanding contributions to the elucidation of the role of neurotransmitters in ischemia and trauma; the interactions among multiple neurotransmitters; mechanisms of hypothermic neuroprotection; and the role of oxygen radical mechanisms and nitric oxide in brain injury.
