Robert Speth, Ph.D.

Each month, the American Physiological Society (APS) selects the most outstanding recently published papers from each of the 10 research journals it publishes. In February, APS selected an article coauthored by Robert Speth, Ph.D., professor of pharmaceutical sciences at NSU’s College of Pharmacy, in conjunction with investigators at Georgetown University and St. Louis University.

The article was titled “Aging-related impairment of urine concentrating mechanisms correlates with dysregulation of adrenocortical angiotensin type 1 receptors in male Fischer rats” and ran in the American Journal of Physiology – Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology. The manuscript’s coauthors included: Hong Ji, Wei Zheng, Xie Wu, Robert C Speth, Joseph G. Verbalis, Lauren M Stein, Gina L. C. Yosten, Willis K Samson, Kathryn Sandberg.
