1) Departmental Statement from the Chair
This report documents the accomplishments of the NCBP department in calendar year 2010.
These accomplishments are credited to our professorial faculty together with the vital contributions of
staff and students. The professorial faculty held at 18 in number (listed below). In scholarship we
succeeded in advancing biomedical sciences in a variety of areas. For example, we advanced
understanding of (a) cellular signaling of changes in oxygen and pH by the carotid body and brainstem
for regulation of respiration, (b) neuroendocrine regulation in the gut, (c) alterations of ion channels in
excitable tissues during critical illness, (d) development and modification of spinal cord circuits. These
advances were reported in >50 peer-reviewed articles, abstracts and presentations as the fruits of
active research labs supported largely through extramural funding ~$2.2 million. Through these
achievements NCBP faculty established themselves as leaders in their research disciplines as
evidenced by the invitation of over half of our faculty onto national grant review committees and/or
editorial boards. NCBP productivity was also represented by the pre- and post-doctoral students who
receive training from our research laboratories through any one of four different degree programs
before moving forward with scientific careers at a variety of prestigious universities. It is likely that
these accomplishments account for our sense of an increased national awareness and regard for
