Reed, MD</a>, dean of the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. “We are grateful to Dr. Mitch Shub, the previous chair of the department, who has done so much over many years to promote education and research at the College and to advance the care of children in Phoenix and beyond.”    </p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">Dr. Goldman is tasked with continuing to grow a robust research and education enterprise in one of the fastest-growing markets in the country, and recruiting the nation’s top talent. He will oversee a research program that consists of 700 studies, 640 research investigators and 90 research staff members — including research scientists, associates, biostatisticians, pharmacists, nurses, coordinators and assistants.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">In his role leading the Department of Child Health science laboratories at the College of Medicine – Phoenix, Dr. Goldman and his team will focus on translational research across all aspects of children and family health to innovate clinical care, advance new therapies for common and rare childhood diseases, and to improve the emotional, educational and cognitive well-being of children.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">In addition to his work to advance the research agenda, Dr. Goldman will continue to cultivate and grow the academic mission of both organizations, which currently educate more than 113 residents and 63 fellows.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">“I am honored and excited to join this world-class children's health system and uniquely progressive medical school to bring innovation and advances to children and their families,” said Dr. Goldman. “The partnership between Phoenix Children's and the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix will enable us to find new, better and less-toxic treatments for children. I’m also thrilled for the opportunity to work with Arizona’s diverse populations, to understand the challenges facing individuals of all backgrounds, and to work toward alleviating health disparities and improving care for all children.”</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">Dr. Goldman comes to Phoenix after a 23-year tenure at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, formerly known as Children’s Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, where he was the division head of Hematology-Oncology, Neuro-Oncology & Stem Cell Transplantation; was honored as the Meryl Suzanne Weiss Distinguished Professor in Hematology, Oncology & Stem Cell Transplantation; and served as a professor of Pediatrics.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">An accomplished leader in brain tumor research, his contributions to the medical and scientific communities are significant. Dr. Goldman has published more than 150 articles in peer-reviewed journals and has held leadership positions with the Children's Oncology Group, is a member of the National Cancer Institute’s Brain Malignancies Steering Committee, serves on multiple committees for the American Society for Pediatric Hematology Oncology, is a member of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium’s Executive, Steering and Scientific Committees, and has served as a faculty member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, among numerous others. In recent years, Dr. Goldman’s research has focused on new therapies for pediatric brain tumors, including diffuse midline gliomas.  </p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">He also is the recipient of dozens of awards including Loyola University’s 2020 Stritch School of Medicine Alumni of the Year for Excellence in Research and Innovation, the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation’s Pioneer Award for outstanding contributions in pediatric neuro-oncology and brain tumor research and the University of Chicago’s Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award. He is regularly included in <em>America's Top Doctors</em>, <em>America's Top Doctors for Cancer</em> and in <em>Chicago Magazine’s</em> annual Top Doctors issues.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">“In partnership with surgeon-in-chief, Dr. Dan Ostlie, and physician-in-chief, Dr. Jared Muenzer, Dr. Goldman will enhance Phoenix Children’s clinical excellence and innovation,” said Meyer. “His work alongside our physician-researchers will amplify our efforts and bring new hope to children with life-threatening conditions.”</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">Phoenix Children’s physicians engage in research across multiple clinical disciplines including cancer, neurology, cardiology and pulmonology, and this research is expected to expand significantly with Dr. Goldman at the helm. Indeed, Dr. Goldman’s appointment comes on the heels of groundbreaking new research from Phoenix Children’s/University of Arizona physicians, including a study co-authored by Michael Kruer, MD, confirming the genetic basis for some cases of cerebral palsy.

At No. 6, ASU ranks alongside MIT, University of California-Berkeley, Georgia Tech and Purdue University and ahead of Carnegie Mellon University, Princeton and the University of Georgia. Since 2002, ASU research expenditures have grown more than fivefold, going from $123 million to nearly $640 million today.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin:1em 0px;max-width:800px;line-height:1.4em;color:rgb(25, 25, 25);font-family:arial, helvetica, "nimbus sans l", "liberation sans", freesans, sans-serif;font-size:16px;" class="p3">In the most recent HERD rankings, ASU placed No. 26 overall among public institutions (of 405 total) in research expenditures, putting it alongside the University of Texas-Austin, Purdue University, Michigan State University and the University of Arizona and ahead of the University of Virginia, University of Alabama, University of Iowa and North Carolina State University.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin:1em 0px;max-width:800px;line-height:1.4em;color:rgb(25, 25, 25);font-family:arial, helvetica, "nimbus sans l", "liberation sans", freesans, sans-serif;font-size:16px;">ASU ranked No. 43 for all universities nationwide (of 916 total) with or without a medical school in FY19, placing it alongside the University of Illinois, the University of Texas-Austin, Purdue University, Michigan State University and ahead of the University of Chicago, California Institute of Technology and Princeton University.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin:1em 0px;max-width:800px;line-height:1.4em;color:rgb(25, 25, 25);font-family:arial, helvetica, "nimbus sans l", "liberation sans", freesans, sans-serif;font-size:16px;">Federal agencies, led by NASA and including NSF, Health and Human Services, the Department of Energy and the Department of Defense have invested substantial research dollars in ASU, along with investment from businesses, nonprofits and philanthropic sources, as well as state and local grants. </p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin:1em 0px;max-width:800px;line-height:1.4em;color:rgb(25, 25, 25);font-family:arial, helvetica, "nimbus sans l", "liberation sans", freesans, sans-serif;font-size:16px;">Each year through the HERD survey, the NSF updates its list of where the money for research is going. It’s a way to look under the hood of the machinery of a university to see how well the engines that power research are running. ASU’s rise in the HERD survey underscores its strength in research funding — and the confidence that major agencies and others have in ASU research.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin:1em 0px;max-width:800px;line-height:1.4em;color:rgb(25, 25, 25);font-family:arial, helvetica, "nimbus sans l", "liberation sans", freesans, sans-serif;font-size:16px;" class="p4">“Research is a critical component of how we address the grand challenges we are collectively facing in today’s world,” said Sally C.

During the early stages of cancer, these proteins and protein fragments — which form the tumor microenvironment — leak into circulating blood.<br>   “Our data reinforces the idea that this release of ECM components into circulation, even at the earliest stages of malignancy, can be used to design a specific and sensitive biomarker panel to improve detection of breast cancer,” said Dr. Pirrotte, the study’s senior author. “Using a highly specific and sensitive protein signature, we devised and verified a panel of blood-based biomarkers that could identify the earliest stages of breast cancer, and with no false positives.”<br>   To establish this protein signature, researchers employed blood samples from 20 patients with IDC breast cancer, and from 20 women without cancer who nonetheless had positive mammograms but benign pathology at biopsy. <br>   The published findings appear in the journal <a target="_blank" href="https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/tgen.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=6b0e128788a10661a1fb2d549&id=ecc6917c9e&e=aef60cd9f1__%3b%21%21LkjWUF49MRd51_ry%21PDIHrk4h8flKwadWid4j-VjFhTDIfCuduoHMW3OQlIqlBJFxc-mdIRWmgA7BtuvGqp9yN_PhD9U$"><em><span style="color:rgb(41, 109, 192);">Breast Cancer Research</span></em><span style="color:#296dc0;"> [tgen.us10.list-manage.com]</span></a>.<br>   With additional testing, this method could someday be routinely used in medical check-ups alongside mammography due to its high degree of specificity. </span><span style="font-size:10.5pt;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:#222222;"><br> <br> </span>​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br></p> </html></div>https://biomedicalphoenix.com/Lists/News/Attachments/135/TGen image for lab report.png2021-01-27T07:00:00ZTGen

In addition, they examined the genomes of coronavirus strains known to infect bats, pigs, pangolins, ferrets, civets and chickens.</p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;border-radius:0px;margin:0px 0px 20px;">“We pursued a systematic gene-by-gene comparative analysis, investigating how and to what extent the SARS-CoV-2 genome sequence differs from other well-characterized human and animal coronavirus genomes,” Dr. Schork said. “Our study results will allow the development of models of how the virus and its hosts interact, enhancing our understanding of the disease-causing mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 and how to exploit both viral and host therapeutic targets.”</p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;border-radius:0px;margin:0px 0px 20px;">Study results suggest that miR1307 serves as a switch that turns various genes within the virus on or off, potentially making the disease more or less harmful to patients by regulating, for example, how fast or slow the virus replicates.

Helping kids walk: NAU engineer takes collaborative research into wearable robotics devices to PBCHelping kids walk: NAU engineer takes collaborative research into wearable robotics devices to PBC<div class="ExternalClass25C410F7937647AFB7C6E2B21651A7E8"><html> <p>​<span style="color:rgb(0, 52, 102);font-family:acumin-pro, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:window;">Collaborative research between the three major Arizona universities is helping young people with cerebral palsy (CP) to walk more confidently and safely on their own.</span></p> <div style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:2rem;color:rgb(0, 52, 102);font-family:acumin-pro, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;" class="entry-content"> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1.75rem;">This research, led by Northern Arizona University mechanical engineering assistant professor <span style="box-sizing:border-box;font-weight:bolder;">Zach Lerner</span>, uses wearable robotic devices to assist a person’s gait and to provide tools that help to retrain their legs how to walk. Lerner, who holds a dual research appointment at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix, is working with colleagues from UArizona and Arizona State University at the Phoenix Biomedical Center (PBC).</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1.75rem;">The study, published in the <a style="box-sizing:border-box;color:rgb(0, 87, 171);text-decoration-line:underline;background-color:transparent;transition:all 0.3s ease 0s;" href="https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?tp=&arnumber=9246668" target="_blank">IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology</a>, looked at six children with cerebral palsy. Each child came in to the PBC for 10 training sessions with this device; the goal was to measure and retrain each child’s walking gait by strengthening plantar flexors, increasing their speed and reducing the amount of energy needed to walk.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1.75rem;">The wearable device, which added targeted resistance depending on how the child was walking, also provided immediate feedback so the researchers could determine how well the child was doing and what needed to be adjusted, which contributed to better outcomes for every child who participated in the study.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1.75rem;">“Most exoskeleton research has been conducted to provide assistance, aimed at making walking easier. We did the opposite. We used an exoskeleton to provide targeted resistance for neuromuscular gait retraining, aimed at improving long-term function,” Lerner said. “We also used immediate sensorimotor feedback, which we think is really critical for training the participants to use their own muscles more efficiently.”</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1.75rem;">Although the study size was small and lacked a control group, Lerner is pleased with the results of the study, which showed that wearable adaptive resistance training was a feasible and effective tool in improving mobility for individuals with CP, even those with ingrained walking patterns who needed to be retrained. With four weeks of training, every participant improved in every measure of success.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1.75rem;">“We expect that this intervention may be suitable for other patient populations affected by neuromuscular impairment because it aligns with the guiding principles of neuroplasticity—task specificity and top-down active engagement,” the study reads. “This relatively low-cost, battery-powered and wearable intervention was designed for translation to both clinical practice and personal use at home, and as an untethered device, training can take place under a variety of contexts, including overground walking. The inherent accessibility of this wearable intervention provides individuals with the opportunity to significantly increase the frequency of targeted neuromuscular rehabilitation.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1.75rem;">The likely next step for this research is completing additional exoskeleton gait rehabilitation studies at PBC, which is helpful for recruiting larger and more diverse participants.</p> <div style="box-sizing:border-box;" data-url="https://news.nau.edu/lerner-pbc-research/" class="at-below-post addthis_tool"></div> </div> <footer class="entry-footer" style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:3rem;color:rgb(33, 37, 41);font-family:acumin-pro, arial, sans-serif;font-size:16px;"> <div style="box-sizing:border-box;font-family:acumin-pro-condensed, arial, sans-serif;font-weight:900;font-size:1.1rem;color:rgb(0, 52, 102);text-transform:uppercase;" class="author">NAU NEWS</div> </footer>​<p><br></p></html></div>https://biomedicalphoenix.com/Lists/News/Attachments/117/NAUkidswalk.png2020-12-10T07:00:00ZNAU

Identifying a novel therapeutic strategy for these conditions would have significant impact on both lifespan and quality of life. These studies are focusing on changes that may be occurring during fetal development that may set the stage for future disease in adulthood. Understanding the long-term consequences of prenatal stress is particularly important right now given the increased stress that everyone is experiencing.”<p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;"></p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">The NIH grant will fund three integrated studies that include:</p><ul style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;"><li style="box-sizing:border-box;">A population-level clinical neuroscience study relating prenatal stress and immune biomarkers to sex differences in brain circuitry and physiologic deficits in response to stress in MDD in early midlife.</li><li style="box-sizing:border-box;">Testing a novel therapeutic device to target the central nervous system’s control of mood and autonomic nervous system, which regulates bodily functions like heart rate, and associated physiology to reduce these sex-dependent deficits in MDD.</li><li style="box-sizing:border-box;">Experimental studies that will identify the mechanistic pathways in the brain involved in projects one and two.</li></ul><p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">The first two projects will be performed at Massachusetts General Hospital under the leadership of Dr. Goldstein, Ronald Garcia, MD, PhD, and Vitaly Napadow, PhD. The third project is directed by Dr. Handa, and the work will be performed at Colorado State University and UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix in the laboratory of Dr. Hale.</p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">The specific work at UArizona is to evaluate the impact of prenatal stress on regulation of blood pressure and heart rate, as well as behavioral function. Assessments will evaluate the impact of prenatal glucocorticoid exposure on behaviors that are suggestive of anxiety and depression. Glucocorticoids, including cortisol, are hormones that are increased in response to stress. UArizona researchers also will evaluate the potential therapeutic efficacy of transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation — involving regular, mild pulses of electrical energy sent to the brain via a branch of the vagus nerve accessible in the outer ear — to reverse these effects.</p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">“The scientific mission of this SCORE grant is to identify abnormalities, beginning in fetal development, that have shared consequences for sex differences in brain circuitry regulating mood, lifelong recurrence of MDD, hormonal imbalance, immune responses to stress, and autonomic and neurovascular dysfunction in early midlife and target these abnormalities using a novel neuromodulation technique,” Dr. Goldstein said. “The goal of this SCORE is to enhance our understanding of sex on MDD and translate this knowledge into sex-selective treatment strategies.”</p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">According to researchers, MDD is associated with abnormalities in the stress response areas of the brain. These brain regions also regulate the autonomic nervous system, which is involved in the short-term regulation of blood pressure and heart rate. Dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system is associated with cardiovascular disease. In fact, women are at twice the risk for the co-occurrence of MDD, autonomic dysregulation and heart disease, leading to a 3-5-fold risk of death in women from heart disease, often with unrecognized and untreated MDD.</p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;">“This funding is critical to perform studies to advance our knowledge of the relationships between disorders of the brain and the heart, and to identify novel treatment strategies to specifically target cardiovascular disease and MDD,” Dr. Hale said.</p><p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;"><em>Grant Number: NIH U54 MH118919. The Innovation Center on Sex Differences in Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital is the primary site under Dr. Goldstein’s leadership.
