Hats off to Casey Carmichael who has been chosen to receive the 2013 Caroline tum Suden/Frances Hellebrandt Professional Opportunity Award from the American Physiological Association! The award is one of three based on abstract submissions that are offered by the APS for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Casey was selected by the Women in Physiology Committee from 154 applicants and will be presented the award at the 2013 Experimental Biology meeting in Boston in April. Her abstract is entitled, “A role for Gai2 proteins in the acute neural control of blood pressure.”
Casey is a second-year graduate student in the Ph.D. Program in Biomolecular Pharmacology who is pursuing research in the Laboratory of Cardio-Renal Research under the mentorship of Richard D. Wainford, Ph.D. Her research is aimed at understanding the central neural aspects of blood pressure regulation in order to identify the pathophysiology and potential treatments for hypertension.
