Doctoral Students Visit the Naked Mole Rats
Naked mole rats (Heterocephalus glaber) are of great interest to scientists due to their unusually long life span and extreme cancer resistance. As part of weekly journal club, our students have elected to discuss multiple papers on naked mole rat research, beginning with the publication of the H. glaber genome in 2011. They were also fortunate to get a behind the scenes look at the naked mole rat colony at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington, DC, thanks to small mammal biologist David Kessler.

School of Medicine students from Sexual Development and Reproduction module published in Diabetic Medicine
Each year, first year medical and Special Masters Program in Physiology
students write review articles in the Sexual Development and
Reproduction module, directed by Dr. Gallicano. Of these reviews, a
small number of outstanding articles are submitted for publication in
peer-reviewed journals, with seven papers published in journals such as
Diabetic Medicine, Stem Cells and Development, and Developmental
Neuroscience over the last three years. This year, students Kyle
Godfrey, Bobby Matthew, Julie Bulman, and Omar Shah; and faculty Dr.
Clement and Dr. Gallicano, have published "Stem Cell Based Treatments
for Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus: Bone Marrow, Embryonic, Hepatic,
Pancreatic, and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells" in the journal Diabetic
Medicine, a peer-reviewed journal with strong impact factor. MorePosted by Ian Gallicano.
