Congratulations to Dr. Noel Warfel

Congratulations to Dr. Noel Warfel who was awarded a Lung Cancer Discovery Award, a one year $100,000 grant from the American Lung Association to fund his project “Targeting PIM kinases to Oppose Nrf2-driven Lung Cancers”


In the Age of Social Media, He's a New Kind of Scientist

What does it mean to be a scientist? Far more than doing research in a lab, says Michael Johnson, whose unconventional passage into the field began with a bowling championship and a music degree.


Romanoski Lab discovers DNA variations that may underlie susceptibility to coronary artery disease.

In a recent study led by UA Assistant Professor Casey Romanoski, PhD, the research team used genome-wide epigenetics to identify major drivers of human artery endothelial cell responses to inflammatory environments. They utilized endothelial genome sequences called enhancers to pinpoint DNA variation in humans that may underpin differential susceptibility to coronary artery disease. Their findings, published June 6th in eLIFE (https://elifesciences.org/articles/22536), improve our understanding of vascular biology and moves us one step closer to understanding the molecular mechanisms of disease.


Congratulations to Dr. Keith Maggert

Congratulations to Dr. Keith Maggert who has received the prestigious NIH Director’s Transformative Research Award, a five-year $1.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to fund his project “Induced transgenerational inheritance without epigenetics”.

UA Cancer Center Scientist Recognized for ‘Bold Approach to Major Challenges in Biomedical Research’ through NIH Transformative Research Award

Keith Maggert, PhD, with the University of Arizona Cancer Center and associate professor of cellular and molecular medicine, has been awarded a $1.7 million NIH grant and has been recognized for his high-risk/high-reward research that has the potential to change the way we think about epigenetics in disease.


UA Health Sciences Promotes Collaborative Research With Multidisciplinary Program Feasibility Awards

To ensure researchers are competitive in their submission for national research funds to develop cures or new treatments for the world’s most pressing diseases, the UA Health Sciences has awarded four faculty members multidisciplinary program feasibility awards.


UA College of Medicine – Tucson Earns 2016 Health Professions Diversity Award

The college was honored with INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine’s 2016 Health Professions Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award.


Growing up on an Amish Farm Protects Children Against Asthma, UAHS Collaborative Research Shows

House dust differences between Amish and Hutterite communities affect immune development and asthma risk, according to study co-authored by University of Arizona Health Sciences researcher Dr. Donata Vercelli published today in the New England Journal of Medicine.


UA Health Sciences Study of Devastating Lung Disorders in the Critically Ill Receives $11.4 Million Boost

Five-year National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute program project grant led by UA Vice President for Health Sciences Dr. Joe G.N. “Skip” Garcia


New UAHS Molecular Research Discovery May Translate to New Treatments for a Number of Viral Diseases

Infecting between 50 to 80 percent of the population in the U.S. by the age of 40, the cytomegalovirus, known as CMV, is providing UAHS researchers with answers on how the incurable virus is able to lay dormant and then reactivate to become a life-threatening risk for those with inadequate immune systems.


Boosting Immunity in Older Adults: UA Health Sciences Immunologists Unmask New Infection-Fighting T Cells

Immune-system frailty in adults 65 and older is a widespread public health issue. A study led by the Department of Immunobiology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson points to new cells that may hold a solution.
