Schmitt Receives 2014 Mary Carter Award

Published: Apr 4, 2014

 

Lexington, Ky. (April 4, 2014) -- Frederick Schmitt, a professor in the University of Kentucky Department of Neurology and the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, has received the 2014 Mary Carter Award from Down Syndrome of Louisville. The award recognizes outstanding service and contributions that result in improved quality of life for people with Down syndrome. 

 

Schmitt's research interests focus on understanding the basic mechanisms in brain aging and dementia. 

 

While Schmitt's name is the only one on the award, he is enthusiastic about sharing credit with others. 

 

"In my view, this is actually a team award," Schmitt says. "Research like this wouldn't be possible without a terrific group of dedicated and enthusiastic staff or, more importantly, without our participants and families who volunteer their time and energies."
