Founded in 1887 and with over 10,000 members today, APS seeks to advance scientific discovery, understand life, and improve health. Carter has been an APS member since 2002, served two terms on the Neural Control and Autonomic Regulation (NCAR) steering committee, received Research Recognition Awards from three distinct APS sections (NCAR, Central Nervous System, and Teaching), and served as a governing Councilor of the organization from 2019 to 2022.

“I am truly humbled by this honor from APS—an organization I have engaged with and served within over the past 20 plus years,” Carter said. “I look forward to continuing my commitment to the organization and to my fellow members, especially APS trainees and the next generation of leaders that APS serves so well.”
