Family of Distinguished Cardiovascular Physiologist Donates Over $100,000 to the APS

Family of Distinguished Cardiovascular Physiologist Donates Over $100,000 to the APS

Serving as Chair of the Department of Physiology at New York Medical College from 1970–2007, Gabor Kaley was one of the longest sitting chairs of physiology in the nation. He had a fervent interest in the science of physiology and imparted it to the next generation by training numerous graduate students. For his living history interview, he stated: "I don't think about retiring. Intellectually, I feel I'm at the top of my game and I don't believe I've even slowed down much." Although Gabor did eventually retire, he never forgot his love of physiology and maintained his involvement in the APS until his death. To learn more about Gabor's life and career, please view his interview for the APS Living History of Physiology series.

Harriette and David Jason Kaley, in a joint commitment to the APS and The Microcirculatory Society (MCS), made a gift of $100,000 to each society to honor her late husband and his father, Gabor Kaley. The APS and MCS have jointly established the Gabor Kaley Endowed Memorial Lecture and Student Awards to honor Dr. Kaley's ground-breaking discoveries in cardiovascular and microcirculatory physiology. The endowed award recognizes outstanding efforts of physiologists to better understand the cardiovascular system. His family's generous gift has created a lasting legacy for Gabor at the Society.

The APS greatly appreciates all gifts, including memorial gifts. For more information on how to establish a memorial fund, please visit apsgiving.org or contact the Development Office at donations@the-aps.org or call (301) 634-7406.
