Dongsheng Duan, assistant professor of molecular microbiology and immunology at the MU School of Medicine, was selected to receive the Dorsett L. Spurgeon MD Distinguished Medical Research Award.

The annual award recognizes outstanding achievement by researchers early in their careers. Duan will be the keynote speaker at the Health Sciences Center Research Day on Nov. 11 and will receive a cash prize.

Duan joined the molecular microbiology and immunology department in 2002. He and his team are researching effective gene therapy for the most common and lethal form of muscular dystrophy, a degenerative muscle disease.
