Meet Our Donors and Awardees

Learn about the enormous impact of APS programs and awards on physiology and biomedical research by reading interviews with APS donors and awardees.


APS Member Sue Barman Establishes New Professional Opportunity Award  

Sue Barman, PhD, FAPS, has held many titles within APS since joining the Society in the 1980s—Central Nervous System (CNS) Section Steering Committee member, Councilor and President to name a few. With her history of service, it’s no surprise that she is continuing her support now and into the future with the new Susan M. Barman Professional Opportunity Award for Research in Central Autonomic Neurophysiology. 

 

APS Member Raul Camacho, PhD, Gives Back to Next Generation of Minority Travel Fellows

APS member Raul Camacho, PhD, is a principal scientist working on obesity and diabetes programs and pre-clinical drug discovery at Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a pharmaceutical company of Johnson & Johnson. As a graduate student at Vanderbilt University, Camacho was an APS Minority Travel Fellow (MTF) from 2003–2005 which allowed him to attend the APS annual meeting at Experimental Biology and the International Union of Physiological Sciences Congress. 

  

An Interview with Katie Wilkinson, PhD: 2017 Macknight Early Career Innovative Educator Award  

Katherine “Katie” A. Wilkinson, PhD, is the winner of the 2017 Macknight Early Career Innovative Educator Award. An assistant professor of biological sciences at San Jose State University, Wilkinson studies proprioception—the sense of the body’s position and movement in space. We recently spoke with her to learn more about her background (and her hometown’s surprising claim to fame), her research recognized by the Macknight Award and why she values her APS membership. 
 

Paying it forward: perspectives of past Porter Fellow, Clintoria Williams, PhD

For 50 years, the APS has encouraged underrepresented minority students to pursue science-related careers, seeking to directly increase the number of minority research physiologists. The Society’s signature diversity program is the Porter Physiology Development Fellowship, which has provided graduate fellowships for underrepresented minorities pursuing a doctorate in physiology since 1967. We spoke with Clintoria Williams, PhD, past Porter Fellow (2005–2006), about her experience as a Fellow and how it impacted her career.
