Undergrads compete for American Physiological Society Bruce awards at Experimental Biology

BETHESDA, MD (April, 2006) Think undergraduate competition, and the NCAA "March Madness" basketball tournament, or the football bowl games, pop to mind.

In fact, there are competitions that highlight the academic abilities of undergraduates and spur these students to even greater academic heights. Take the third annual David S. Bruce Undergraduate Research Awards, for instance. These awards, sponsored by The American Physiological Society (APS), recognize excellence in undergraduate research.

The competition this year attracted 29 high-level applicants from all over the world. APS pared down to 12 talented finalists who will present their research at the Experimental Biology 2006 (EB) conference April 1-5 in San Francisco.

Four students will be chosen from among the finalists to receive the Bruce awards, which carry a $500 award. The finalists for the 2006 David S. Bruce award are:

Bates College Kate Russell and Julia Simons
Colorado State University Jon Gonzales
Oberlin College/Vanderbilt University Manasi Bhate
Michigan State University Jennifer Edwards
Radford University Marissa Smith
Tulane University Mary McCarty
University of Calgary Carol Chan
University of Maryland/Tripler Army Medical Center Adrian Feijoo
University of Missouri David Ingram
University of North Carolina at Charlotte Robert Overton
Williams College Gillian Sowden

The final awards will be presented at EB at the end of the Sunday, April 2 undergraduate poster session. To be eligible for a Bruce award, undergraduate students must:

  • be the first author of a research study
  • carry out the bulk of the experiment themselves
  • submit an abstract of the study for EB
  • submit a letter explaining the study and its significance
  • have an interest in pursuing a career in a physiology, or a related field, including a biomedical career
