BACKGROUND: We aimed to investigate the impact of taking dedicated time for research (DTR) during training and/or getting a PhD on subsequent career achievements of US academic cardiothoracic surgeons. METHODS: Online resources (institutional Web sites, CTSNet, Scopus, NIH RePORTER) were queried to collect training information (timing of medical school/residency/fellowship graduation, DTR, PhD) and academic metrics (publications, citations, research funding) for 694 academic cardiothoracic surgeons practicing at 56 premiere US institutions...

Gregg L. Semenza, MD, PhD; Peter J. Ratcliffe, MD; and William G. Kaelin Jr., MD, will share the 2016 Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award. Bestowed by the Lasker Foundation, the award recognizes their discovery of the pathway that cells use to sense and adapt to changes in availability of oxygen. Such changes can play a role in cancer progression and the development of other medical conditions.

Drug development (DD) is a multidisciplinary process that spans the translational continuum, yet remains an understudied entity in medical schools and biomedical science institutes. In response to a growing interest and unmet need, we implemented a DD course series that details identification of viable molecular targets, clinical trial design, intellectual property, and marketing. Enrollment is open to faculty, postdoctoral trainees, and MD, PhD, and MS students. After 2 years, 37 students and 23 students completed the fall and spring courses, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Mitochondrial membrane protein associated neurodegeneration (MPAN) is the third most common subtype of neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) and caused by mutations of the orphan gene C19ORF12 encoding a transmembrane mitochondrial protein. Like other NBIA disorders, the hallmark of neuropathology is iron deposition in the basal ganglia, but the clinical presentation is highly variable. METHODS: We present the relevant clinical history, neurological examination, electrophysiological and neuroimaging tests of a currently ten-year-old patient are presented...

PURPOSE: Arterial spin labeling (ASL) is an alternative method to Dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) perfusion MRI for brain tumors. However, ASL cerebral blood flow (CBF) can be easily affected by transit time. DSC MRI derived time to maximum of the residue function (Tmax) is possible to assess the transit time on ASL. METHODS: Thirty patients with brain tumors were studied using ASL and DSC MRI. The relative cerebral blood flow (rCBF), relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV), Tmax, and mean transit time (MTT) were obtained from DSC MRI...

The paper by Jones and colleagues, published in this edition of Clinical Investigative Medicine, contributes to our understanding of Canadian MD/PhD Programs. While there has been little published on this subject by the Canadian programs, themselves, this paper is the most recent in a series by leaders of the Clinical Investigator Trainee Association of Canada (CITAC). The authors are to be commended for their efforts and productivity.

PURPOSE: There has been limited examination of clinician scientist training in Canada, particularly regarding training integration and funding. This study assessed program structure, funding, tuition and mentorship structures available at Canadian MD/PhD programs. METHODS: Clinician Investigator Trainee Association of Canada administered an anonymous survey to current trainees and program directors that captured program structure, trainee funding, tuition and mentorship opportunities and needs across institutions...

A large portion of the Korean population has been exposed to toxic humidifier disinfectants, and considering that the majority of the victims are infants, the magnitude of the damage is expected to be considerably larger than what has currently been revealed. The current victims are voicing problems caused by various diseases, including but not limited to lung, upper respiratory tract, cardiovascular, kidney, musculoskeletal, eye, and skin diseases, etc. However, there has been difficulty in gaining validation for these health problems and identifying causal relationships due to lack of evidence proving that toxic humidifier disinfectant is the specific causes of extrapulmonary diseases such as allergic rhinitis...

General transcription factor II E (TFIIE) contains an acid-rich region (residues 378-393) in its α-subunit, comprising 13 acidic and two hydrophobic (Phe387 and Val390) residues. Upon binding to the p62 subunit of TFIIH, the acidic region adopts an extended string-like structure on the basic groove of the pleckstrin homology domain (PHD) of p62, and inserts Phe387 and Val390 into two shallow pockets in the groove. Here, we have examined the dynamics of this interaction by NMR and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations...

Changes in health care-including a growing emphasis on quality, outcomes, and lower costs-are transforming the delivery of care and creating a knowledge gap that continuing education must bridge. As clinicians and health leaders spend less time in hospital settings, educational activities are likely to extend their reach, for instance through online education distributed on laptops, tablets, or smartphones. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, MD, PhD, explored this shift in his 2016 keynote to the World Congress for Continuing Professional Development: "Learn to Change: Teaching Toward a Shifting Health Care Horizon...

Parasites and parasitic diseases have been prevalent in Iran according to Iranian ancient scholars and physicians' inscriptions dating back to 865-1496. Some protozoan diseases such as malaria and cutaneous leishmaniasis have been introduced by clinical manifestations and helminthic infections by size and morphology of the worms. Scientific studies of Parasitology started in Iran from 1833, first by foreign physicians and continued from 1909 by Iranian researchers. The pioneer medical parasitologists of Iran were Dr N...
