I am very excited to report this year’s awardees from the Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology Section (CEPS) of the American Physiological Society! The New Investigator Award is given to a young investigator who has made contributed significantly to the field of comparative and evolutionary physiology. This year’s awardee is Casey Mueller from California State University, San…

Experimental Biology 2016

I am getting my poster presentations ready for the Experimental Biology conference next week in San Diego. In my opinion, this is one of the most exciting conferences as we get to hear about the latest physiology research. I cannot wait to share what I learn with you! Here is a YouTube video with just…

Hats off to all of the comparative physiologists who were recognized for their hard work and exciting research at the 2015 annual Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology Business meeting at the Experimental Biology conference earlier this month. I thought I would take a moment to recognize each awardee:              

Experimental Biology Day 4

Day 4 of the meeting turned out to be pretty exciting for a comparative physiologist as well. The first session that I went to was called “RNASEQ approaches to understanding extreme physiological adaptations.” Considering the Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology section business and dinner meeting was the night before, I was impressed at my ability to…

Day 3 of the Experimental Biology meeting was arguably one of the most exciting for comparative physiology. Here are the highlights from Monday: Morning Seminars: Birgitte McDonald from Aarhus University, Denmark presented, “Deep-diving sea lions exhibit extreme bradycardia in long-duration dives.” Birgitte and Dr. Paul Ponganis measured the heart rate of California sea lions (Z.…

Check out the world’s fastest animal (relative to its size): This research was featured at this year’s Experimental Biology conference!

Experimental Biology Day 2

Another exciting day at the Experimental Biology meeting for physiologists! Although I am a bit nervous about the session on the negative effects of sleep deprivation, “Sleepless in San Diego: Is Sleep Deprivation the New Silent Killer?” Hmmm, maybe I should have gone to bed a bit earlier last night… Dr. Karen Matthews (Univ of…

Experimental Biology Day 1

The meeting is off to a good start. I attended a session sponsored by the American Physiological Society on Animal Models of hypertension caused by the nervous system, or neurogenic hypertension. While their definition of comparative really only meant rats, dogs and humans, I found it very interesting nonetheless. The speaker, Dr. Olson from the…

Heading to the airport

I am very excited about the Experimental Biology conference that starts this weekend. I have my bags packed, my poster printed and I am heading to the airport to catch my plane. I can’t wait to learn about all of the exciting physiology (especially comparative physiology) research. I will be sure to keep you up-to-date…

Experimental Biology

I am very excited about the upcoming Experimental Biology conference that starts next weekend. I just looked through the Spring newsletter for the Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology section of the American Physiological Society. Check out the exciting programming in comparative physiology at this year’s conference: Monday, April 28 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM Featured Topic: Abstract-Driven Trainee Session…
