FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Five UNM students will be going to the 2005 International Union of Physiological Sciences Congress thanks to the American Physiological Society.

Jessica Bryant, Nate Roybal, Jason Griego, Samantha Torres and Carment Troncoso, will be heading to San Diego, Calif., to the gathering that will attract more than 16,000 scientists from dozens of scientific disciplines.

The American Physiological Society awarded 42 minority travel fellowships to pre and post-doctoral minority students in the physiological sciences across the U.S. and Puerto Rico to facilitate student participation in the IUSP 2005.

In addition to attending the March 31-April 5 meeting, each fellow is paired with an American Physiological Society member who will serve as a mentor during the conference. Mentors will offer guidance on appropriate sessions to attend, introduce fellows to other scientists and provide career advice.

The American Physiological Society is a professional scientific membership organization devoted to fostering scientific research, education and the dissemination of scientific information.
