FASEB Announces 2024 Howard Garrison Advocacy Fellowship

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology is now accepting applications for the 2024 Howard Garrison Advocacy Fellowship. This opportunity is open to biological and biomedical researchers in all career stages who wish to engage in collaborative exploration of science advocacy and communications.

A Prune—Or Six—a Day May Keep Inflammation at Bay

A study in postmenopausal people suggests eating nutrient-rich prunes every day may be beneficial to bone health, reducing inflammatory factors that contribute to osteoporosis. The research will be presented this week in Philadelphia at the American Physiological Society’s (APS) annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2022.

Antioxidant, Inflammation Levels May Reveal New Diagnostic Tool for Breast Cancer

A new study that analyzes levels of antioxidants and stress markers in the blood could lead to a new diagnostic tool for breast cancer. The research will be presented this week in Philadelphia at the American Physiological Society’s (APS) annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2022.

Blueberry Extract May Aid Wound Healing

Treating wounds with an extract taken from wild blueberries may improve healing, according to a new study. The research will be presented this week in Philadelphia at the American Physiological Society’s (APS) annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2022.

High Caffeine Consumption Disrupts Heart Rhythms in Middle-aged Rats

New research finds that excess caffeine is more likely to cause irregular heart rhythms in middle aged rats than in young adult rats. The study will be presented this week at the American Physiological Society annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2022 in Philadelphia.

Five Minutes of Daily Breath Training Improves Exercise Tolerance in Middle-aged and Older Adults

New research finds potential for high-resistance inspiratory muscle strength training to help sedentary middle-aged and older adults transition to a healthier lifestyle. The study will be presented this week at the American Physiological Society annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2022.

Exercise Improves Health Markers in Young Female Survivors of Childhood Trauma

New research shows a progressive exercise training program mitigates some physiological and psychological effects of adverse childhood experiences in otherwise healthy young women. The study will be presented at the American Physiological Society annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2022.

Tissue Repair, Mitochondrial Function and Wound Healing Explored in 2021 APS President’s Symposium

Top researchers in physiology will present a three-part series exploring cellular regulation of mitochondrial function, tissue repair and wound healing. The APS President’s Symposium Series will be part of the APS annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2021, which will be held on a virtual platform April 27–30.
