The American Physiological Society Awards program demonstrates the Society's dedication to its members and biomedical research by recognizing the research efforts of outstanding APS members. As part of our mission to foster education, scientific research and dissemination of information in the physiological sciences, APS hands out more than 400 awards in the field of physiology each year totaling more than $1.2 million. Awards are offered by the Society and the various Society Sections. And for a different snapshot of awards available, please view our APS News Update – Awards Special Edition for Winter Deadlines
