Professor Jean Chen Shih, the University Professor and the Boyd and Elsie Welin Professor of the University of Southern California, was recognied by SCBA and honored as a Recipient of the 2009 SCBA Lifetime Achievement Award for her pioneering research in the roles of the monoamine oxidase genes in drug and alcohol addition, gene-environment interactions, neurophysiology and pharmacology, memory, cognitive functions and psychiatric disorders, including aggression, autism, schizophrenia and neurodegenerative diseases.

Professor Shih originated from Taiwan and obtained her bachelor degree from National Taiwan University and Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Riverside in 1968.
Professor Shih has received numerous distinguished awards, notably the Volwiler Research Achievement Award from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy in 2000, the first woman to receive this award in the 20-year history of the organization. Professor Shih has been elected as a member of the Academia Sinica in 2002. She serves on numerous elite panels at the local, national and international levels and delegations for the United States. She is a co-founder of a biotechnology company, the Cocensys, with the mission to develop therapeutics for disorders of the central nervous system. Professor Shih is a prolific teacher and mentor for close to one hundred students, including high school, college, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Professor Shih served as the President of SCBA and presided over the 10th SCBA International Symposium held in Beijing in 2004. She has been a significant contributor to our organization.
Professor Shih was unable to travel to Taiwan receive her award, and in place of her scheduled lecture, a short video describing her important contribution in the molecular genetics of monoamine oxidases was presented with great appreciation from the conference participants.

By making knockout mice lacking either MAO A or MAO B, Jean C. Shih, a Professor at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy, and her collaborators previously showed how each isoenzyme functions in the body.However, up until now, scientists have been unsuccessful at making a mouse lacking both MAO A and MAO B.
This all changed when Dr. Shih and her colleague, Professor Kevin Chen, noticed that one of the mice in an MAO B knockout litter was a little different from its littermates-it had a lower body weight and was extremely hyper-reactive when approached.
...
"Both MAO A and MAO B are critically important," says Dr. Shih.
...
"Interestingly," says Dr. Shih, "a similar single base pair mutation occurs in the MAO A gene in the men of a Dutch family who show impulsivity and aggressive behaviour."
