Vadim N. Gladyshev, Ph.D., FAAAS, is Professor at Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an expert and pioneer in antioxidant/redox biology. He is known for his characterization of the human selenoprotein encoded by 25 genes. He has conducted studies on whether organisms can acquire cellular damage from their food and the role selenium plays as a micro-nutrient with significant health benefits. In 2013 he won the NIH Pioneer Award.
Vadim is Principal Investigator at his Gladyshev Laboratory – Brigham & Women’s Hospital. The Lab is part of the Department of Medicine, Division of Genetics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
