Bartlett named AAPS Fellow

Athens, Ga. – Michael Bartlett, professor of pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences at the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy, has been named a Fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists for 2011. Last year he was chosen recipient of the AAPS Research Achievement Award in Analysis and Pharmaceutical Quality, one of the highest awards conferred by AAPS.

Bartlett has earned an international reputation for his work in the development of novel bioanalytical methods to investigate the behavior of medically relevant molecules in a wide array of biological samples. His work has led to the development of diagnostic methods to assess cardiovascular disease, fetal drug exposure, and the impact of chemicals on memory and cognition.

Among his accomplishments are the development of the first liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry method for the determination of the cardiovascular biomarker asymmetric dimethyl arginine; methods to determine fetal cocaine exposure; methods to assess placental transport of antivirals; and methods to assess the role of a wide variety of anti-psychotics and chemical warfare agents on memory and cognition. More recently his research group has had success developing methods for the quantitation of therapeutic macromolecules including peptides and oligonucleotides. Bartlett is recognized for his unusual combination of depth and breadth in the field of bioanalytical chemistry.
