Valerian Kagan is the ‘cover scientist’ of an academic journal

Valerian Kagan, professor of environmental and occupational health at the School of Public Health, was honored as the “cover scientist” of the journal Antioxidants and Redox Signaling, for his pioneering work in the field of redox biology.

In addition to gracing the cover of the premier journal’s May issue, Kagan’s life and scientific achievements are the subject of an article in the journal.

“Professor Kagan’s story is that of a quintessential scientist from the start. Always a doubter, but one working diligently to find the truth. The world of redox lipidomics, of which he is a major founder, is vastly richer for his contributions to these truths,” said Sally Wenzel, chair of Pitt Public Health’s Department of Environmental and Occupational Health.
