   Mr. Chedd is a visiting professor at the Alan Alda Center at Stony Brook University. He is the producer of all of Alan Alda’s science shows on PBS, including 11 seasons of Scientific American Frontiers and the mini-series The Human Spark and Brains on Trial. Read his full bio.

The symposium is open to all EB attendees. We'll see you there!

Physiology is the study of how molecules, cells, tissues and organs function in health and disease. Established in 1887, the American Physiological Society (APS) was the first U.S. society in the biomedical sciences field. The Society represents more than 10,500 members and publishes 15 peer-reviewed journals with a worldwide readership.

Altered Immune Cells May Both Contribute to Preeclampsia and Offer New Hope for Treatment

Released April 23, 2017 - In a new study presented at the APS annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2017, researchers have found that the immune system’s natural killer (NK) cells activate and change in response to placental ischemia. Disrupting these altered cells seems to blunt some of the dangerous complications of the condition, including high blood pressure (hypertension) and inflammation in the mother and growth restriction in the fetus.
