Marlowe Eldridge, MD, Receives Additional Funding From NIH National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute

Posted: August 29, 2014

Marlowe Eldridge, MD, was recently awarded a 1-year, $100,000 supplement to his R01, funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NIH-NHLBI). Dr. Eldridge will be working with Co-Investigator, Kara Goss, MD (Department of Medicine - Pulmonary Medicine) on the project entitled, "Influence of Sex and Maturation on Right heart-Pulmonary Vascular coupling in bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD)." Female babies with BPD demonstrate improved survival over their male counterparts, although it is currently unclear if they are at higher risk of developing pulmonary hypertension. The goal of this project is to investigate the influence of sex hormones and maturation on lung and right heart function in BPD. The information gained could impact treatment strategies and predictions of disease progression.

Casey Reiser, MS, CGC, Discusses the Role of Genetic Counseling in On Wisconsin Magazine Feature Article

Posted: August 12, 2014

Genetic counselors trained at UW-Madison, such as Casey Reiser, who went on to lead the UW program, learn how to compassionately break potentially life-changing news to a patient and talk about their options. As the field of genetics has become a legitimate part of medicine’s toolbox, genetic counselors are invaluable in helping others understand this emerging knowledge.
