In addition to his scientific achievements, Mark received two teaching (mentoring) awards, served as Executive Director of the American Aging Association and as the chief and final decision-maker for the Association's fundraising action group. He also served as co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Azheimer's Disease and on the editorial board of our Journal of the American Aging Association and other journals.

The Mark Smith Memorial Fund will be used to support free radical and Alzheimer's disease-related presentations at our annual meetings and will bear Mark's name on the program and award certificate. This award is to support participation of one or more promising trainees at the Association Annual Meeting and to encourage students to maintain the scientific and personal standards that made Mark so special. All contributions are tax deductible.
