Matthew R. Hodges, PhD, Assistant Professor of Physiology and member of the Neuroscience Research Center, has been named as one of two recipients of the 2015 Giles F. Filley Memorial Award for Excellence in Respiratory Physiology and Medicine. The Giles F. Filley Award is given to early career professionals “demonstrating outstanding promise based on his/her research program in respiratory physiology and medicine.” Each Filley Award recipient is awarded $14,500 to be used in their research program. Dr. Hodges will be presented with this honor at the American Physiological Society (APS) Business Meeting held at the Experimental Biology on March 31st, 2015, and will also be recognized at the APS Respiration Section dinner.




Daria Ilatovskaya, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow from Dr. Alexander Staruschenko's lab, was honored at MCW’s annual Women in Science Awards Luncheon on October 29, 2014.  The luncheon is the final event in the eighth annual Women in Science series.  Dr. Ilatovskaya received a $1,000 Edward J. Lennon, M.D. Award as an Outstanding Woman Postdoctoral Researcher and gave a brief presentation on her work on the role of ion channels in the mechanisms of salt and water handling along the nephron.  The Women in Science lecture series offers the public an opportunity to meet and support local female scientists and physicians and to hear about their outstanding research.
