WSU Student Receives Research Fellowship

OGDEN, Utah -- Weber State University student Jarem Lloyd, a senior majoring in chemistry, has been named a 2005 American Physiological Society Undergraduate Research Fellow.

The fellowship provides $3,000 of financial support to assist students in studying biomedical research with a professor or agency for 10 weeks. Along with University of Utah professor J. David Symons, Lloyd is studying the effects of exercise on endothelial dysfunction in diabetic mice. Lloyd is primarily involved with cell imaging.

Upon completion of the fellowship, Lloyd will be eligible to present his findings at the annual APS conference, Experimental Biology, next spring in San Francisco.

Only 13 students nationwide were selected to receive the fellowship, and Lloyd is the only Utah student participating. Lloyd plans to pursue a career as a medical researcher.
