American Physiological Society honors 16 scientists with awards/distinguished lectureships

Sixteen scientists singled out for their exemplary research by the American Physiological Society (APS) will receive awards and highlight their work in lectures to the Experimental Biology 2006 conference April 1-5 in San Francisco.

The awards include the Society's two highest: The Walter B. Cannon Award for lifetime achievement, to Jo Rae Wright of Duke University Medical Center, and the Henry Pickering Bowditch Award to Ulrich Hans Von Andrian for early-career achievement.

Editor's Note: APS welcomes members of the press to cover these distinguished researchers as well as presentations by leading physiologists at the 100 workshops and symposia -- and thousands of individual presentations -- on the latest physiological research.
