 • “Metabolic Reprogramming in Pulmonary Hypertension”Stephen M. Black, PhD — professor of medicine and physiology, and director, Lung Vascular Pathology Program, Division of Translational and Regenerative Medicine; This past spring, Dr. Black won a $2.74 million award from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, a unit of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to study genetic pathways to study “Perinatal Nitric Oxide (NO) Signaling in Congenital Heart Disease.”

Mark your calendars for the March 8 speaker, Stefano Guerra, MD, PhD, MPH — associate professor of public health; professor of medicine, UA Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine; the Dr. Stefano GuerraHenry E. Dahberg Chair in Asthma Research at the UA College of Medicine – Tucson; director, Epidemiology Unit, UA Health Sciences Asthma and Airway Disease Research Center; and UA BIO5 Institute member.

Dr. Guerra recently was awarded a $3.6 million grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a unit of the NIH, for a study entitled “CC16 in Childhood and Resilience to Persistent Asthma into Adult Life,” to investigate management of a protein found in far reaches of the lungs to decrease likelihood of childhood asthma continuing into adulthood.

About the Lecture Series

The UA Department of Medicine Research Seminar Series began in September 2016 as a way to showcase the remarkable breadth of medical research conducted at the University of Arizona. It pairs a junior and senior investigator from different divisions who each speak for 20-25 minutes followed by 5-to-10-minute Q&A sessions. Each seminar is held on the second Thursday of the month between September and June, noon-1 p.m., UAHS Room 5403. They also are simulcast live to Banner – University Medical Center South, Conference Room 3030, 2800 E. Ajo Way, Tucson.

A light lunch is served in the style of grand rounds.

If you are a junior or senior faculty researcher in the UA Department of Medicine and would like to present in this series, please contact Jil Tardiff, MD, PhD, vice chair for research, or Claudia Duran, senior program coordinator, Office of the Chair, crduran@deptofmed.arizona.edu or (520) 626-6349.
