Marshall research professor receives national award

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Associate Professor Daniel Brazeau, PhD, (center left) at the Marshall University Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy, was awarded the George R. Spratto Biological Sciences Distinguished Achievement Award by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). He received a plaque presented in July during the 2023 AACP Meeting in Denver, Colorado.

The award recognizes ACCP members who have made scholarly contributions within biological sciences and sustained a culture of excellence in education and mentorship.

“I am honored to receive this award,” said Brazeau. “Recognition coming from my colleagues is particularly gratifying.”

Brazeau’s research focuses on population genetics and pharmacogenomics.  Past funded work includes studies in the pharmacogenomics of immunosuppression, development of DNA/RNA preservation solutions that are compatible with the growing proliferation of Point-of-Care (POC) instrumentation, gene expression, genotyping, RNA sequencing, and recently wastewater surveillance for pathogen detection.

Brazeau was the founding chair of the Pharmacogenomics Special Interest Group in the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy.  He is a member of the National Science Foundation’s Geneticist-Educator Network Alliances working with high school teachers to incorporate genetics into the classroom.
