Congratulations! to Dr. Terry Hinds, along with colleagues at University of Mississippi Medical Center and Montclair State University, published "Biliverdin Reductase Isozymes in Metabolism" in the High-impact Journal Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism.  Note that Dr. Hinds was able to involve two Medical Students in preparing this review, and they are among the authors.  This is a great way to get medical students [including MSBS students] and other students productively involved.


Congratulations to Dr. Turner and his laboratory!  A manuscript authored by Dr. John W. Turner entitled "Environmental Influences on Movements and Distribution of a Wild Horse (Equus caballus) Population in Western Nevada, USA:  a 25-Year Study" has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Natural History.  The Journal of Natural History was established in 1841 and is regarded as one of the most influential journals in biology and medicine over the past 100 years.


 Congratulations! to Dr. Guillermo Vazquez's laboratory, who's work entitled "Increased Size and Cellularity of Advanced Atherosclerotic Lesions in Mice with Endothelial Overexpression of the Human TRPC3 Channel" (authors:  Smedlund K, Birnbaumer L, Vazquez G) has been accepted for publication in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA.


 

beata lecka-czernikCongratulations! to Dr. Beata Lecka-Czernik who has been invited to become a member of a new American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) Work Group to Promote Communication with Diabetes Researchers.  The purpose of the work group is to increase communication with investigators primarily involved in diabetes research.  The work group is charged with reaching out to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and other related organizations in an effort to develop joint projects that would facilitate communication across disciplines.
