Stephen C. Bondy
Stephen Bondy was educated in the United Kingdom, received a BA and an MA degree from Cambridge University and a Ph. D. in biochemistry at the University of Birmingham in 1962. He was then a post-doctoral Fellow at Columbia University in New York, and then a Research Associate at UCLA. He continued on to join the faculty of the Department of Neurology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Denver. Here he was one of the first to demonstrate a relation between learning and cerebral blood flow. This work was published in Nature. He also contributed to our knowledge of the origin of life in a seminal paper published in Science. After this, he joined the NIH as Head of The Division of Neurochemical Toxicology, Research Triangle Park, NC. Currently, Dr. Bondy is Professor of Environmental Toxicology at the University of California Irvine. His recent contributions here have emphasized the role of both oxidative stress and neuroinflammation as contributors to normal aging and to the progression of neurodegenerative disease. His studies involve both investigation of the causation and amelioration of brain senescence. Dr. Bondy has served on several NIH Study Sections, including several years as Chair of a Neurological Disorder Section. He has received invitations to present his findings on a worldwide basis, ranging from Europe, to South America, India and Australia. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers and has written 60 book chapters. He has edited numerous volumes in neuroscience and has written two books on neurochemistry. He currently serves on the following Editorial Boards: Neurochemistry International, Neurotoxicology, Toxicology and Industrial Health, International Journal of Toxicology, Occupational and Environmental Health, Current Aging Science, Geriatric Medicine, International Journal of Environmental Research.
