BETHESDA, MD (April 26, 2006) Students from Colorado State University, Oberlin College, Michigan State University and Williams College took top honors in the third annual David S. Bruce Undergraduate Research Awards competition this year.

Twenty nine student-researchers applied for The American Physiological Society (APS) award, which recognizes excellence in undergraduate research. Judges chose the four winners from among 12 finalists who presented their research at the Experimental Biology 2006 (EB) conference earlier this month in San Francisco.

The winners receive $500 and a certificate. The 2006 Bruce award winners are as follows:

  • Manasi Bhate - Oberlin College, Oberlin, OH. "GCK-3 induced phosphorylation alters C1C anion channel outer pore structure," by Manasi Bhate, of Oberlin College, and Liping He and Kevin Strange of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN.
