 Kenneth Setchell wins prestigious Windaus award for research in bile acids and liver disease
Setchell was granted the Windaus Prize for his research accomplishments in the area of bile acids and liver disease which include the discovery of six genetic defects that cause liver disease in infants and children and the development of a treatment for reversing what are otherwise fatal conditions.
Windaus is known for his work in identifying the chemical structure of cholesterol and vitamin D, among other areas.
The Windaus Prize is considered the most prestigious award in the field of bile acid research and liver disease.

 Windaus
Windaus chose zoology as his subsidiary subject on account of the deep impression which Weismann's lectures had made on him in Freiburg.
Wieland - another close friend of his who received the Nobel Prize for 1927 for his studies of the constitution of the bile acids and related substances - Windaus thus demonstrated that the bile acids are closely related to the sterols.
Windaus received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1928, on account of his work on the constitution of sterols and their connection with vitamins.

 Unraveling the Enigma of ... - Animal, Vegetable, or Min...
From the very start, he believed that sterols, which occur in every cell, must be considered as the parent substance of other groups of natural substances, and he was convinced that investigations into the structure of these molecules would yield unexpected results.
By 1925, Windaus was recognized as the leading expert on sterols, and Hess invited him to come to New York to work on antirachitic vitamins.
Windaus also was collaborating with Rosenheim and Webster in London at the time, and in 1927 both teams, using a series of clever chemical transformations and comparisons with known compounds, deduced that ergosterol was the likely parent substance of vitamin D in food.

The work for which Dr. Windaus received the prize was the successful repetition of experiments proving that ultraviolet light, either in the sunlight or artificially produced, will activate the chemical called ergosterol and confer on it antirachitic properties.
Windaus was so impressed by Dr. Barger’s original results that he asked permission to collaborate with Barger in subsequent work on the problem.
Windaus himself had been experimenting along similar lines without achieving definite results.

 vitamin D
The Nobel Nobel prize for chemistry for 1928 was awarded to Adolf Windaus "for his studies on the constitution of the sterols and their connection with vitamins".
The vitamin in question was vitamin D and Windaus was the first scientist to receive an award mentioning vitamins.
Vitamin D2 (calciferol) originates from irradiation at about 260nm of ergosterol while vitamin D3 is formed by irradiation of a provitamin molecule (7-dehydrocholesterol) present in the skin and gut lining.

 Windaus, Adolf
Adolf Windaus was born in Berlin on December 25, 1876, the son of Adolf Windaus and Margarete Elster.
Cooperating with the I. Farbenindustry, which supplied the precious raw material for the work, he was able to prove that not an imidazole-ring (as suggested by Jansen and Donath), but a thiazole- and a pyrimidine-ring are present in vitamin B1.
Windaus was appointed Assistant Professor (1906), and Professor of Applied Medical Chemistry at Innsbruck University (1913), where he remained for two years.

 Designs evolving for wind turbines
Windaus Energy of Brantford, Ontario, says its wind turbines can be easily scaled for use in residential backyards or large commercial wind farms.
Nevertheless, the Windaus turbine doesn't have the typical propeller blades used on conventional wind turbines, such as the ones along the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Somerset County.
Instead, Windaus employs a vertical column with three twisting wings made of a light but strong composite material.

 HHMI Bulletin: Cholesterol - A Century of Research
The first hint that cholesterol was related to atherosclerosis goes back to 1910, when the German chemist Adolph Windaus reported that atherosclerotic plaques from aortas of human subjects contained 20- to 26-fold higher concentrations of cholesterol than did normal aortas.
Windaus and Anitschov studied aortic plaques rather than the coronary artery plaques that are responsible for heart attacks.
Aortic plaques in humans had been noted by 19th-century pathologists, who believed that coronary artery plaques were rare; they also believed that when a thrombotic occlusion of an atherosclerotic plaque did occur in a coronary artery, it was always a fatal event.

 Vertical Windmills - Popular Mechanics
Windaus says this is because the blades catch the wind regardless of the direction from which it blows.
Although remains of foundations for vertical windmills dating to 1150 have been found in France, it is only with the advent of lightweight composites that the design has become practical.
Windaus believes the inherently quiet operation of vertical turbines will also spur wider interest in wind power.

German organic chemist Adolf Windaus was awarded the 1928 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for research "for the services rendered through his research into the constitution of the sterols and their connection with the vitamins", the first Nobel prize for work in human nutrition.
Windaus began his studies in 1901 with the steroid cholesterol since nothing was known about its structure at the time.
In 1926, he proved that ultraviolet light (from sunlight or laboratory sources) activates the compound ergosterol and gives vitamin D, which is valuable in preventing the rickets bone disease.

Kenneth Setchell, PhD, director of the Clinical Mass Spectrometry Laboratory at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, has been awarded the 2004 Adolf Windaus Prize for his research accomplishments in the areas of bile acids and liver disease.
The Windaus Prize is presented every other year by the Falk Foundation to a scientist who has made significant achievements in gastroenterology.
It is also pleasing to receive this award in Stockholm because my career started at the Karolinska Institute where I completed my postdoctoral studies," Dr. Setchell said.

 Borodin and cholesterol
Cholesterol was first discovered in 1789 although it was not until 1932 that Windaus and Wieland were able to elucidate its chemical structure (Vance and Van den Bosch,2000).
Its role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic disease was established in the early part of the 20th century.In 1910 Windaus had reported that atheromatous lesions contained 6 times as much cholesterol than the normal arterial wall.In 1913 Anichkov induced atherosclerosis in rabbits by feeding them cholesterol (Mehta and Khan,2002).
Since then there has been much further work published and there is a great public awareness of cholesterol as a risk factor in the development of cardiovascular disease.
