APS announces its 2002 Young Investigators Awards

The American Physiological Society (APS) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2002 Young Investigators Awards. The winners, who hold academic standing up to the assistant professor level, are APS members who have demonstrated outstanding promise in one of four fields of physiology. Monetary prizes are presented to the recipients institution on behalf of the individual to further his/her research program and total almost $90,000. Awards presentations will be made at the Experimental Biology meeting in the Ernest M. Morial Convention Center New Orleans, La., on April 23, 2002.

2002 Young Investigator Award Winners:

Claudette M. St. Croix, Ph.D. University of Pittsburgh
The Giles F. Filley Memorial Award in Respiratory Physiology and Medicine
An award of $25,000 will be made to the University of Pittsburghs Department of Environmental and Occupational Health on Dr. St. Croixs behalf. Her research focuses on nitric oxide signal transduction and metal ion (zinc) homeostasis in pulmonary vascular endothelial cells. Dr. St. Croixs specific goals are to investigate how nitric oxide-induced changes in intracellular zinc affect gene expression and cell survival.

Mai-Lan N. Huynh, M.D. University of Colorado Health Sciences Center
The Giles F. Filley Memorial Award in Respiratory Physiology and Medicine
An award of $25,000 will be made to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center on the behalf of Dr. Huynh. She is developing an animal model to examine what happens when dying cells are scavenged by the immune system. Dr. Huynh has shown that when dying cells are scavenged, the transforming growth factor beta-1 is secreted, which resolves inflammation more quickly. She plans to focus on how this process causes tissue fibrosis.

Simon C. Malpas, Ph.D. University of Auckland
The Arthur C. Guyton Award for Excellence in Integrative Physiology
An award of $15,000 will be made on Dr. Ma
