Margaret Zimmerman received the prestigious American Physiology Society: Water and Electrolyte Homeostasis Predoctoral Research Recognition Award at the 2013 Experimental Biology Meeting. Zimmerman’s abstract entitled “Ang (1-7) has a Greater Contribution to the Blood Pressure Lowering Effects of AT1 Receptor Blockade in Female Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats (SHR) Compared to Males” was one of three finalists chosen to compete for the award.
