The Senate of the 131st General Assembly of Ohio called last week for Ohio University’s Marvin White Chair and Distinguished Professor, Dr. Tadeusz Malinski, to be acknowledged for his research.

The Ohio Congress was interested in Malinski’s research into nanomedicine after they received word of the professor’s recent honor of the Grand Gold Medal by the Society of Arts-Sciences-Letters (Paris, France). So the distinguished professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry was invited to the Ohio Statehouse for a formal recognition.

On Wednesday, Feb. 10, Ohio State Sen. Lou Gentile of Ohio’s 30th Senatorial District invited the professor to the floor of the Senate chamber and presented him with an official Senate Resolution. In addition to acknowledging Malinski’s award, the resolution specifically mentions the time and energy that the professor has poured into his work over his many years and refers to his, “… unfaltering devotion to service and achievement, [he] has distinguished himself as a responsible and hard-working Ohioan.”

In his speech in front of the Senate, Gentile commended Malinski for his lifelong research and important discoveries in cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. He then praised Malinski’s many contributions to medicine and humanity – commenting that the Grand Gold Medal was, “certainly a significant award and an international recognition.”

Malinski received the Grand Gold Medal in July 2015 for his contributions to science and humanity. He is internationally renowned for his contributions to medicine and is considered one of the pioneers of a new field of medicine – nanomedicine. He is best known for the development of nanosensors and nanotools used for the early diagnosis of dysfunction in the cardiovascular and neuronal system. By utilizing these methods and tools in the nanoscale, he was able to discern the molecular mechanism that leads to epilepsy, aneurism, salt-induced hypertension and hemorrhagic stroke in the brain.
