• Thomas Kleyman appointed Editor in Chief of Physiological Reports as of January 2018; Morten Thomsen appointed Deputy Editor in Chief:  The Joint Managing Board of Physiological Reports, representing the Publication Committees of the American Physiological Society and The Physiological Society, is pleased to announce the following Editor appointments to the Journal:
  • Older Adults’ Lungs Remain Strong during Exercise:  Highly active older adults experience no limitations in the lungs’ capacity to exchange gases (lung-diffusing capacity) during physical activity, researchers have found. The study is published in the Journal of Applied Physiology.
  • APS Awards $267,350 to Its 2017 Undergraduate Research Fellows:  The American Physiological Society is pleased to announce it's 2017 Undergraduate Summer Research Fellows. Recipients of the Society’s four summer fellowship programs spend an average of 10 weeks in the laboratory of an established scientist and APS member.
  • Global Warming May Cause Spike in Asthma, Allergy Symptoms:  A new study finds that exposure to a widespread outdoor fungus can increase cell damage (oxidative stress) in the airways. This spike weakens the airways’ barrier defense system that, when functioning normally, removes infection- and allergy-causing organisms (mucociliary clearance). The study, published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Cell Physiology, was chosen as an APSselect article for June.
  • Short, High-Intensity Exercise Sessions Improve Insulin Production in Type 2 Diabetes:  A new study finds that short, functional-movement and resistance training workouts, called functional high-intensity training (F-HIT), may improve beta-cell function in adults with type 2 diabetes. Beta cells in the pancreas produce, store and secrete insulin, which allows your body to use sugar for energy. The small study is the first one of its kind to analyze beta-cell function in F-HIT or resistance training. The article is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Endocrinology and Metabolism.
