May 6, 2002 - Bethesda, Md. - The American Physiological Society (APS) has announced the winners of its 2002 Postdoctoral Fellowships in Physiological Genomics. The two-year award will provide funds totaling $73,000 to each of the three winning scientists including stipend and a mini research grant for each year.
2002 Winners of the APS Postdoctoral Fellowship in Physiological Genomics:
Ana Diez-Sampedro, Ph.D.
University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine
Topic: Dr. Diez-Sampedro is investigating the role of sodium-glucose co-transporters in muscle.
Malcolm A. Lyons, Ph.D.
The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine
Topic: Dr. Lyons research focus is identifying the gene responsible for susceptibility to gallstones.
Brian R. Wamhoff, Ph.D.
University of Virginia
Topic: Dr. Wamhoffs research focuses on the gene expressions and molecular mechanisms of smooth muscle cells associated with arterial hardening and vascular disease.
The aim of this program is to advance the study of physiological genomics by furthering understanding of the genome in the context of the organism. The Fellowship was established to provide training that enables outstanding young scientists to combine the tools of cellular and molecular biology in the setting of the whole animal. Through these fellowships, awarded annually since 1995, APS has contributed nearly $1,000,000 to physiological genomics research.
