The principal mission of this program is to provide a unique opportunity for a graduate or undergraduate department (or training program) to host a prominent visiting physiologist in order to promote education and research in cell and molecular physiology. During the visit, the invited speaker will engage students and other junior scientists with the purpose of exposing them to cutting-edge technology, experimental strategies and research being pursued in the speaker’s laboratory. In addition, the award is intended to recognize the excellence of the visiting scientist’s research program.
