- The Discovery Award was presented to Joe Beckman for distinguished achievements in neuroscience. Beckman has shed light on the role of oxidative stress in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease. His lab's long-range goal is to understand the causes of ALS and to identify drugs and dietary compounds with the potential to treat the disease. Read more
