Award Description

The Arthur C. Guyton Award Fund was established in 1993 from an anonymous donation in order to recognize the contributions of Arthur C. Guyton and his interests in feedback control and mathematical modeling of physiological systems. The award is intended to support an independent investigator who holds an academic rank no higher than assistant professor and is pursuing research that utilizes quantitative and integrative approaches and feedback control system theory for the study of physiological functions.


One award is presented annually to an individual demonstrating outstanding promise based on their research program.
