Date:3/25/2008

BETHESDA, Md. (March 25, 2008) The American Physiological Society (APS; www.the-APS.org) announced today that it has awarded its 2008 Minority Outreach Fellowships to TanYa Gwathmey and Kesia Mathis. This is the third year of the award program.

Dr. Gwathmey, an African-American, is a postdoctoral fellow in the Hypertension and Vascular Research Center at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C. There she studies the impact of fetal programming on hypertension and cardiovascular physiology, motivated by her concern of the health disparity that exists in the African-American population with regard to hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Gwathmey plans to become an independent researcher, seeking a faculty position at an institution of higher learning where she can further study the mechanism(s) underlying the development of hypertension and renal injury, with particular emphasis on the effects on reproductive function. Dr. Gwathmey is a graduate of Hampton University (BS in Molecular Biology), has her Masters degree in Endocrinology and Reproductive Biology from the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School, and obtained her doctorate in Reproductive Physiology from Cornell University.

Ms. Mathis, an African-American, is a third-year pre-doctoral candidate in the Department of Physiology at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. Her research focuses on the cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, and immune impact of alcohol on the outcome from trauma and hemorrhagic shock. Mathis plans to continue her research and career by first becoming a post-doc, then by establishing a laboratory of her own. Mathis long-term goal is to reach full professorship and tenure in academia. She has a BS in Physics from Southern University (2001), a MS in Applied Physics from Purdue University (2003) and a MS in Physiology from LSU Health Sciences Center
