This blog has been decommissioned as a library resource, so it will become a place to display photos.

Poppy welcomes you to the next phase.

This is my dog Poppy, a Blue Heeler/Catahoula mix rescue. She worships the ground I walk on.

Focus on Faculty – Testing for Performance Enhancing Drugs

without comments

Dr. Daniel W. Armstrong
Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Robert A. Welch Chair in Chemistry
January 23, 2013
12 – 1:30pm
Central Library sixth floor parlor


Dr. Armstrong will discuss use and detecting of sports enhancing drugs at the Focus on Faculty lecture on Jan. 23, 2013.
In the midst of the media excitement surrounding the Lance Armstrong/Oprah interview, have you ever wondered about who else has been using performance enhancement (PED) drugs? And how? Or how the types of doping they might use? Or how it is detected? Dr. Armstrong will give listeners an overview of PEDs going back farther than you might think!

The use of performance enhancing drugs (PED) has a long history in sports and combat, and only in the last several decades has become an area of concern. This is because issues of health, safety and fairness have come to the forefront. Further, the regulation and control of these substances and those who would use them is an effective way for large regulation-based organizations to acquire power, funds, etc. Also the use of PEDs has extended from world-class athletes and military uses to recreational sports and other venues. A brief history of PEDs will be given, along with an overview of their types and effects. Finally we will take a specific look at a recently banned stimulant that was a constituent of one of the largest selling nutritional supplements in the world.

Daniel W. Armstrong received the UTA 2012 Distinguished Record of Research or Creative Activity award and has over 530 publications, including 29 book chapters, one book, and 14 patents. He has been named by the Scientific Citation Index as one of the world’s most highly cited scientists, and is considered the “Father” of micelle and cyclodextrin-based separations. Other awards include the 2005 Dal Nogare Award for Separation Science, the 1999 American Chemical Society Award in Chromatography, and the 1991 Great Britain Martin Medal for Outstanding Contributions to Chromatography.

Focus on Faculty is a Speakers’ Series for UT Arlington faculty, begun in 2002-2003 to provide a forum for outstanding faculty to share their research and achievements with students, faculty and staff of this campus and with the citizens of Arlington. These meetings are free and open to all. Anyone needing more information or an accommodation to attend should contact Maggie Dwyer at 817-272-5366 or dwyer@uta.edu or visit http://www.uta.edu/library/events/focus.php.
