Congrats to Joshua Gonzalez on receiving the 2021 CNS Steven M. Horvath Professional Opportunity Award from #APSPhysiology. He’ll present his abstract here: http://apsebmeeting.org/eb2021/session.cfm?id=1286
Steven M. Horvath, Ph.D. was a 64-year member of the American Physiological Society, joining in 1943. Dr. Horvath obtained a B.S. in chemistry from Oberlin College, a B.A. in chemistry and physical education, as well as an M.S. in physiology from Miami University of Ohio. In 1939, Dr. Horvath commenced his Ph. D in Biological Sciences at the Harvard Fatigue Laboratory, under the tutelage of Dr. D. Bruce Dill. Dr. Horvath worked on the proposal to establish the Center for Aging Research at University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2001, Dr. Horvath became Professor Emeritus at the University of Buffalo, SUNY. Dr. Horvath took great pride in the achievements of his students, post-docs and colleagues, and during his career he authored over 550 book chapters and peer-reviewed manuscripts.
The Steven M. Horvath Professional Opportunity Award was established by his three children after his passing on March 21, 2007. This award provides funds for junior physiologists to attend and participate fully in the Experimental Biology meeting, and is granted to the top ranked underrepresented minority graduate student or postdoctoral fellow applicants of the Caroline tum Suden/Frances Hellebrandt

Are you an extremely motivated student? Take a big leap forward with the Kinesiology Accelerated Master’s (BS-MS) program!
The Department of Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology will hold a brief informational session about our Kinesiology Accelerated Master’s (BS-MS) program. This accelerated degree plan allows you to combine a bachelor’s degree from Michigan Tech in exercise science, sports and fitness management, biological sciences, or biomedical engineering with a coursework-based master’s degree in kinesiology (4 + 1 = 5 years total). Together, the two degrees help students strengthen their admission applications to professional graduate programs (e.g., medical school, physical therapy school) and gain a competitive edge for careers in industry (e.g., cardiac rehabilitation, strength and conditioning). Current undergraduate students (2nd, 3rd, and 4th year) who are interested are strongly encouraged to attend one of the upcoming informational sessions

Let’s start off this new semester by congratulating our KIP faculty and graduate students who were honored by Provost Huntoon for being in the top 10% of all instructors University wide in the Fall 2020 teaching ratings based on student evaluations. Dr. William Cooke (KIP 5500), Dr. Kevin Trewartha (KIP 4300/5300), PhD candidate Jessica Bruning (BL 2011) and PhD student Isaac Wedig (KIP 3100); these 4 individuals especially excelled this term.
This has been an incredibly challenging time to teach and the entire department has done a phenomenal job with instruction. Thank you all!!
