As recipient of this award, Dr. Vallon will deliver the Young Investigator Award Lecture and chair a Featured Topics session on Tuesday, May 1, 2007 at 8:00 a.m. during the Experimental Biology meeting in Washington, DC.Dr. Vallon received his M.D. from the University of Tübingen in his native Germany in 1992. Subsequently, he pursued research training with Hartmut Osswald in Tübingen, with Roland Blantz at the University of California-San Diego (UCSD), and with Jürgen Schnermann and Josie Briggs at the National Institutes of Health. Following his habilitation and board certification in Pharmacology and Toxicology, he joined the faculty at the University of Tübingen as a Lecturer in 1998. In 2003, Dr. Vallon was recruited to UCSD, where he currently is Associate Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology and a Research Scientist at the San Diego Veterans Medical Research Foundation.Dr. Vallon's research has characterized the roles played by a variety of channels, transporters, receptors, and signaling molecules in the physiology, pharmacology, and pathophysiology of the kidney. He aims to integrate aspects of vascular, glomerular, and tubular function to gain a more complete understanding of the physiology of the kidney as well as the pathophysiology of arterial hypertension and of the early diabetic kidney. His work is a blend of physiology, molecular biology, and pharmacology, and particularly uses gene-targeted mouse models to dissect the contributions of specific genes.The APS Renal Section Young Investigator Award Committee was composed of Jeffrey L. Garvin (Renal Section Treasurer), P. Darwin Bell (representative to the APS Joint Program Committee), and Susan E. Mulroney (representative to the APS Joint Program Committee).
