UA researchers are studying if the combination of dispensing asthma inhalers (corticosteroids) in the emergency department and supervising their use in elementary schools will increase the medication’s use among children with asthma and decrease emergency department visits.
The 2019 free Green Valley Lecture Series begins with a focus on sleep and how it affects heart health.
UA engineers are using a $2.1 million grant to improve scanning technologies for challenging patient populations.
The University of Arizona Cancer Center will benefit from proceeds raised as the Wildcats sport pink jerseys during the cancer-awareness game.
A cardiovascular research team at the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center investigated in a lab model whether metformin, a common diabetes drug, could be an effective treatment for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). The researchers found that the drug reduced left ventricular stiffness, thereby improving capacity for exercise. Metformin relaxes the left ventricle by making a heart muscle protein called titin more compliant.
A message of thanks from the interim dean of the UA College of Medicine – Tucson.
Banner Health nurse navigators at the University of Arizona Cancer Center are paired with patients to guide them through their cancer journeys.
In pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 1b, two key biological structures are blocked from binding to one another — which ultimately stunts critical brain growth.
Two distinguished University of Arizona professors and innovators have been named as National Academy of Inventors Fellows. Thomas Koch, professor and dean of the College of Optical Sciences, and Harrison Barrett, Regents’ Professor of medical imaging, optical sciences and applied mathematics, will now join a growing cadre of distinguished fellows from the UA.
Family medicine physicians Ashley Krauser, DO, and Ana Mendez, MD, MPH, will provide a wide array of primary care services for patients of all ages across Tucson.
In an effort to preserve the confidentiality and integrity of university data and follow the University of Arizona’s security standards, the College of Medicine – Tucson is requiring the encryption of all university-owned laptops.
When a person is paralyzed by a stroke or an injury, the brain and the neuron networks that control movement become disconnected from the muscles. Dr. Andrew Fuglevand is using artificial intelligence to stimulate multiple muscles to elicit natural movement in ways previous methods have been unable to do.
The exhibit will display Arizona-Sonoran Desert-inspired paintings from artists at UA ArtWorks, marking the first art exhibit to take place at the UA Campus Recreation Center’s REC Oasis Lounge & Art Gallery.
Pharmacogenetics expert, Jason Hansen Karnes, PharmD, PhD, BCPS, FAHA, has been named director of scientific programs for the All of Us Research Program team at the University of Arizona and Banner Health.
UA Cancer Center opens clinical trial in Greater Phoenix for novel liver cancer treatment.
Victoria Murrain, DO, has been promoted from interim to permanent deputy dean for diversity and inclusion at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson.
A research team led by Jared Churko, PhD, director of the University of Arizona iPSC Core in the UA Sarver Heart Center, used a transcriptomic approach — studying what genes are expressed — to identify gene signatures of cell subpopulations identified as atrial-like or ventricular-like. This understanding could lead to regenerative therapy discoveries for the millions of people living with damaged heart muscle caused by heart attacks or other chronic heart conditions.
Michael Kruer, MD, receives the first federally funded grant to research genetic causes of condition that affects 1 in 250 children.
