These individuals have made impressive contributions to our academic missions of education, research, and service, and we are fortunate to have them as leaders within APOM. Please join me in congratulating our colleagues for their achievement.

  • Promotion to the rank of Professor:
  • Dr. Kimberly Mauer

Congratulations to Drs. Katie Schenning and Avital O'Glasser on their article entitled COVID-19 in the Perioperative Setting: A Review of the Literature and the Clinical Landscape, published in Perioperative Care and Operating Room Management. 

Congratulations to Dr. Michael Barrington for his article on the QL block which came in as the 4th most cited article in Anesthesiology in 2019 and 2020 - further evidence of Dr. Barrington's international reputation as a leading expert in truncal blocks.

Congratulations to Dr. Hung Nguyen, who, in partnership with Drs. Weinbin Zhu and Selva Baltan, recently published Casein Kinase 2 Signaling in White Matter Stroke, in Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences. This is the first comprehensive review summarizing the role of CK2 signaling in white matter and ischemic injury. The article summarizes the cell-specific CK2 signaling mechanisms and their differential role in mediating different phases of ischemic injury. Additionally, it highlights CX-4945, a CK2 inhibitor and a FDA-approved drug, as a promising therapeutic option that protects white matter against ischemic injury.

Congratulations to Drs. Catherine Davis, Zhiping Cao, and Nabil Alkayed on their recently published article Proteomic profiling of concurrently isolated primary microvascular endothelial cells, pericytes, and vascular smooth muscle cells from adult mouse heart, in Scientific Reports.
Congratulations to members of the Dr. Nabil Alkayed lab, including Drs. Catherine Davis and Thierno Madjou Bah, Wenri Zhang, and Elyse Allen, on two recently published articles. One article, GPR39 deficiency impairs memory and alters oxylipins and inflammatory cytokines without affecting cerebral blood flow in a high-fat diet mouse model of cognitive impairment, was published in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience and the other, Age-dependent cognitive impairment, hydrocephalus and leukocyte infiltration in transgenic mice with endothelial expression of human EPHX2, was published in Nature.
