Hege Larsen wins best oral presentation at Experimental Biology Conference

St Catz DPhil student Hege Larsen (2011, Medical Sciences) won an award for the best oral presentation at the Experimental Biology cross disciplinary conference in San Diego for her talk 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?’.
 
Experimental Biology is an annual meeting comprising over 14,000 scientists and exhibitors representing six sponsoring societies and multiple guest societies. The award was given by the American Physiological Society, Neural Control and Autonomic Regulation (NCAR) section.
 
Hege commented, “As a result of the award, many American professors came up to me and wanted to talk about post doc opportunities, which is exciting. I am very grateful for the generous Catz graduate fund, which helped me to pay for the conference.”
