Final year DPhil and Wellcome Trust OXION student Hege Larsen was awarded the esteemed NCarnation award by the American Physiological Society at the Experimental Biology conference in San Diego last week.

Experimental Biology is an annual meeting comprising over 14,000 scientists and exhibitors representing six sponsoring societies and multiple guest societies.

This multidisciplinary, scientific meeting features plenary and award lectures, pre-meeting workshops, oral and posters sessions, on-site career services and exhibits of an array of equipment, supplies and publications required for research labs and experimental study.

Hege Larsen, who is supervised by Prof David Paterson, won with her talk and poster entitled “Dysregulation of cardiac cAMP in nicotine stimulated sympathetic neuronal-myocyte co-cultures from hypertensive rats: Are sympathetic neurons the primary driver of the autonomic hypertension?”.

Our congratulations to you Hege on this prestigious award.
