Final 2019 Ohio Physiological Society Highlights

OPS 1

Keynote Speaker, Dr. Robert Dirksen, Professor and Chair at the University of Rochester Medical Center

As you can probably tell from the prior posts, the 34th annual Ohio Physiological Society conference was a great meeting filled with exciting new developments in research. However, I would be remiss if I did not mention the outstanding students who received awards for their presentations at the conference.
