2016 Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology Winners Announced!!

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 Marcos.

She is standing with the CEPS Chair, Dr. Michael Hedrick (left) and the 2016 August Krogh Distinguished Lecturer, Dr. Jon Harrison (right).

The CEPS Novo Nordisk Travel Award (sponsored by Novo Nordisk) is given to outstanding graduate or undergraduate students who are doing comparative and/or evolutionary physiology research. The students are judged based on abstract submissions of their research that they submitted to the conference. This year's recipients of the Novo Nordisk Travel Award are Ashley Heim from Colorado State University (top photo) and Joseph Santin from Wright State University (bottom photo).

Finally, the Scholander Award is given to outstanding young investigators based on their poster presentation of their research at the Experimental Biology 2016 meeting.

The outstanding graduate student poster presentation Scholander awards went to:

First Place: Cornelia Fanter, Saint Louis University

Question: What’s the difference between Physiology and “Evolutionary” Physiology?

Answer: Creative writing.

Not a single advancement in physiology, science generally, medicine, or technology has required a belief in evolution.

Not one.

You've made that statement many times before. Prove it. Not by stamping your foot, or misrepresenting an article in a popular magazine, but with references to science.

Otherwise sn, it's just more of your blatant lying and whining that science can explain things your favored mythology can't.
