Not to Be Outdone, DOM Leadership Keeps Academic Presses Rolling with 2016 Articles

While general faculty, fellow and resident physicians within the UA Department of Medicine have been actively pursuing publication of their research, our leadership team has also made great strides in getting word out to the world about the many innovative advancements in medical knowledge they have been working on as well.

This article complements one run posted to the DOM News webpage just before Thanksgiving highlighting published work listed at for physicians, investigators and students in the department: “DOM Physicians, Investigators Prolific with Published Papers around the Globe in 2016.”

The following is a bibliography of their 2016 writings and contributions starting with DOM Chair Monica Kraft, MD, and including our DOM vice chairs and division chiefs (as listed in, the U.S. National Library of Medicine of the National Institutes of Health). In all, there are more than125 more articles listed on subjects ranging from asthma to HIV to kissing bugs to osteoarthritis to lung cancer.
