APS announces four 2004 Young Investigators awards

BETHESDA, Md. The American Physiological Society (APS) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2004 Young Investigators Awards. The awardees, who hold academic standing up to the assistant professor level, are APS members who have demonstrated outstanding promise in the field of physiology. More than $62,000 in monetary prizes is presented to the recipients and their research programs. Winners will receive their awards on Monday, April 19 at the APS annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

2004 Young Investigator Award Winners:

Sarah Gebb, Ph.D. University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver
The Giles F. Filley Memorial Award in Respiratory Physiology and Medicine
An award of $20,000 will be made to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center on Dr. Gebb's behalf. The focus of her research is normal lung development and how premature birth disrupts this process. Her lab has observed that prior to birth, the lung actually needs a low oxygen environment to grow and develop properly. Thus, the high oxygen environment that a premature baby's lungs are exposed to after birth may actually impede lung growth. Dr. Gebb is also investigating several approaches to improve lung development in the high oxygen environment in hopes of improving the mortality and morbidity associated with premature birth.

Dolly Mehta, Ph.D. University of Illinois
The Giles F. Filley Memorial Award in Respiratory Physiology and Medicine
An award of $20,000 will be made to the University of Illinois on behalf of Dr. Mehta. She is studying the effects of RhoA, a low molecular weight G protein found to be a central player in disrupting the cell layer that lines blood vessels. This layer, called the endothelial barrier, is vital in maintaining fluid balance in tissue. Dr. Mehta's lab is investigating the role of Rho regulators in controlling the activation of RhoA. This research will shed light on the mechanisms
