The American Physiological Society, a society dedicated to supporting research and education in the physiological sciences, recently elected Dr. Jason Carter (VPR, KIP) as one of three new governing Councillors of the organization.

The Society was founded in 1887 with 28 original members. It has grown to an organization of over 10,000 members, most holding doctorate degrees in physiology, medicine and other health professions. The Society’s governing body consists of a President, President-Elect, Past President, and nine Councillors.

“It is a real honor to be elected to Council by APS membership,” says Dr. Carter. “APS is the premiere international professional society for physiology research and education, and the organization is going through a number of transitions with a new Executive Director and leadership team.  It will be an exciting time to be engaged and represent the 10,000+ members.”
