The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, South Central Region housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our monthly webinar series.

This monthly 1 hour series will focus on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

Mona M. Ramonetti, Head of Scholarly Communications at Stony Brook University Libraries, will present “Scholarly Communication in Academic Libraries: An ever changing landscape of responsibilities” at 10am on Wednesday January 13th. Details on joining the meeting are available at the event link above. No registration is required, and the session is free to any interested parties.

Description: Scholarly Communication in academic libraries provides leadership and guidance in matters pertaining to the management, policy making and procedures as they relate to various scholarly pursuits of a campus. These responsibilities encompass issues related to creating and maintaining the Institutional Repository, copyright, open access policy and publishing, open educational resources, data management and funding, among others. Scholarly Communication is a dynamic environment that requires changing approaches, making modifications and accommodating a landscape that is evolving rapidly. Our speaker will be sharing insight on working with entities on and off campus to meet Stony Brook University and Hospital’s scholarly needs.

JANUARY 4 is the final date to apply for the PRECISION Summer Clinical Research Training Program (TCOM CLASS OF 2024)

 

The PRECISION Pain Research Registry is adapting the Summer Didactic portion of its Clinical Research Fellowship Program for first-year TCOM students (Class of 2024) in response to feedback from previous fellows and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Changes will involve an increase in the number of available fellowship positions, emphasis on the conduct of group research projects and publications under the supervision of PRECISION faculty, and delivery of the Summer Didactic program exclusively via remote Zoom technology during daily morning sessions, thereby allowing students to reside outside the DFW metroplex during the training period.

The Summer Didactic portion of the program will run from June 7 through June 25, 2021.

Other anticipated program benefits include:
• $500 stipend for participation in the Summer Didactic program
• Complimentary textbook(s) and materials
• Paid poster presentation at Research Appreciation Day 2022
• Co-authorship upon publication of a group research project
• Fellowship certificate at graduation upon completing research and all related requirements.

Volunteers Needed for a Research Study Conducted By the Allen Lab at UNTHSC.

 

From the laboratory of Dr. Allen in the Microbiology, Immunology, & Genetics (MIG) department at the University of North Texas Health Science Center:

UNTHSC faculty/staff and students,

We invite you to join our research to investigate the human skin microbiome during times of self-isolation (such that of COVID19). We are looking for fifteen (15) faculty/staff and students whose laboratories or offices are in the Center for BioHealth (CBH) on either the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th floor. If you qualify to participate, you will be asked to self-swab your dominant hand and forearm as well as an object from either your laboratory or office space at different frequencies over a period of twenty-eight days. Each swab will you will collect will not take longer than five (5) minutes to complete. You will also be required to fill out a brief questionnaire over the course of the study. The questionnaire will not take longer than 5 minutes to complete for each day of sample collection. We are interested only in the bacterial DNA and not your individual DNA. You will not be compensated for your time. You must be between the ages of 18-90. To learn more please email us at either Michael.Allen@unthsc.edu or opheliakhichi@my.unthsc.edu. We look forward to hearing from you.

Healthy adult volunteers (ages 55-80) needed for heat therapy study

 

“Aging, heat therapy, and vascular ischemia-reperfusion injury”

The University of North Texas Health Science Center and the Human Vascular Physiology Laboratory are recruiting up to 25 subjects (male and female) to take part in a study that will determine whether passive heat exposure protects against vascular impairment following ischemia-reperfusion injury in aged healthy adults.

You must be:
• 55-80 years old; males & females
• Generally healthy
• Currently a non-tobacco/nicotine user (cigarettes, e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco, nicotine patch/gum)

Study Requirements:
• Visit Human Vascular Physiology Laboratory at UNTHSC on 3 separate days; the first will be 1-2 hours, the second and third will each be approximately 4-5 hours
• Participation in this study is voluntary, and if you are a student or employee of UNTHSC your participation (or non-participation) in this study will in no way affect your academic standing or employment.

Subjects will be compensated for their time and effort.

If you are interested in participating in this study as a research subject, please contact Amy Moore via email (amy.moore@unthsc.edu) or phone (817-735-2088).

TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine Grand Rounds: Anatomy Beyond Cadavers

 

Tuesday, January 19, 2021
7:30am to 8:30am
via Zoom

Facilitated by Jose M. Barral, MD, PhD
Professor and Chair
Department of Biomedical Science
Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine

Please e-mail MDFacultyDev@tcu.edu for Zoom information.

The Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine utilizes a multi-modal approach for instruction and assessment of the anatomical sciences (which include, in addition to gross anatomy, microscopic anatomy or histology, embryology, and clinical anatomy). Our School does not have a stand-alone anatomy course; rather, we have built anatomy as a longitudinal discipline throughout the curriculum, integrating it into the various systems-based courses. We have built a state-of-the-art facility, the Anatomy Resource Center, that houses a combination of computer-assisted technologies, human cadavers preserved by a process known as plastination, and diagnostic imaging instrumentation, available 24/7 to medical students. Computer-assisted technologies include virtual human cadaveric dissection, augmented reality setups based on actual human cadavers, virtual microscopy interfaces, and portable ultrasound units and ultrasound simulators coupled with augmented reality visualizations.
