- [00:00:01.720]Steven M Barlow has made profound,
- [00:00:03.340]professional contributions in speech physiology
- [00:00:06.113]and neuroscience that have helped to transform
- [00:00:08.393]the study of speech and other orofacial functions.
- [00:00:13.273]Doctor Christopher Moore says that Steve
- [00:00:15.084]has single-handedly populated the ranks
- [00:00:17.467]of speech scientists and physiologists
- [00:00:19.627]with some of our most talented research academicians.
- [00:00:23.392]One area of his research is in addressing
- [00:00:25.366]the feeding difficulties faced by premature infants.
- [00:00:29.193]The problems are very complex
- [00:00:32.507]and there's a clear benefit to improve well-being,
- [00:00:37.522]to improve health care, to improve recovery of function.
- [00:00:43.383]And yet, Steve finds a way
- [00:00:44.750]to solve these very complex problems.
- [00:00:46.852]His work has been a game changer
- [00:00:48.396]that crosses countries, continents, and disciplines,
- [00:00:51.356]and has improved the practice of medicine
- [00:00:53.276]in the lives of children.
- [00:00:55.916]We've not only had
- [00:00:57.366]a very successful laboratory,
- [00:01:00.234]but we've also helped to train
- [00:01:02.064]the next generation of investigators.
- [00:01:06.175]Steve is a highly prolific scientist
- [00:01:08.175]and an accomplished mentor.
- [00:01:10.365]Not surprisingly, innovation is front and center in his lab,
- [00:01:13.508]as his team's experimental paradigms are cutting edge.
- [00:01:17.308]If something isn't available,
- [00:01:18.690]they'll design and build it themselves,
- [00:01:20.679]and they find that many other labs follow their lead.
- [00:01:24.530]You know what's so exciting, it's the outcome.
- [00:01:27.249]How does it impact our society?
- [00:01:30.118]How does it impact these little kids?
- [00:01:32.489]How does it impact the parents
- [00:01:34.826]who now have a new set of tools,
- [00:01:37.246]or a new therapy to help their child develop.
- [00:01:41.049]ASHA is proud to celebrate
- [00:01:43.076]the life and work of 2015 honoree, Steven M. Barlow
