goes to an outstanding scientist, and delivered the Walter B. Cannon Physiology in Perspective lecture on April 18. The lecture is part of the 122nd annual meeting of the APS, which is part of Experimental Biology 2009.

The Society has awarded Dr. Schreihofer the Henry Pickering Bowditch Memorial Award for early-career achievement. She is the 53rd recipient of the award, which goes to a scientist younger than 42 years whose accomplishments are both original and outstanding. It is the Society's second-highest award. Dr. Schreihofer presented the Bowditch lecture on April 19, at the APS session of Experimental Biology 2009.

Distinguished careers

Dr. Abboud is the Edith King Pearson Chair in Cardiovascular Research and director of the Cardiovascular Research Center at the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa. He is a past-president of the American Heart Association, a former editor of Physiology in Medicine (Annals of Internal Medicine) and past president of the Association of American Physicians. He is a member of the National Academies of Science and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Dr. Schreihofer has won three previous awards from The American Physiological Society. She established her own laboratory at the Medical College of Georgia in 2001. Still at the beginning of her career, she has already co-authored more than 35 studies in peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Physiology, Journal of Neuroscience and the American Journal of Physiology.

Dr. Abboud has helped discover how the brain uses hormones to orchestrate blood flow to different parts of the body. This helped explain how the brain sends blood to the gastrointestinal tract after eating, but redirects it to the heart and muscles if we start running, for example.

Recently, his team has been looking at which genes regulate ion channels, microscopic gates that move chemicals in a
