Christian Capitini, MD Receives St. Baldrick's Summer Fellowship to fund Medical Student

Posted: May 6, 2016

Congratulations to Christian Capitini, MD, who was recently awarded a $5,000 Summer Fellowship from the St. Baldricks's Foundation, the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, to fund a student in his lab this summer. Nicole Piscopo, a 2nd year graduate student in the laboratory of Kris Saha, PhD in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UW, will collaborate with Dr. Capitini's lab on the project, "Tagging CAR T cells for GD2+ cancers," with the goal of using her expertise in using CRISPR-Cas9 to tag chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) used for pediatric cancer. This approach will produce key cell lines that can be used to treat GD2 positive tumors, and could be extended to create other engineered cells of the immune system as a broad off-the-shelf cellular toolkit for pediatric cancers.

Eldridge Lab Students Receive Awards

Posted: May 6, 2016

At the April 2016 Experimental Biology Meeting in San Diego, CA, three students in the laboratory of Marlowe Eldridge, MD, won several awards. Undergraduate students Adelaide (Atzie) Sobotik and Taylor Levin both received the David S. Bruce Outstanding Undergraduate Abstract Award, Sobotik for her abstract entitled, "Pulmonary Collagen Content in 1-Year-Old Rats Exposed to Postnatal Hyperoxia," and Levin for his abstract entitled, "Long-term adaptations in hepatic substrate utilization in 1 year old rat model of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia." Taylor was also awarded the David S. Bruce Excellence in Undergraduate Research Award. The David S. Bruce Outstanding Undergraduate Abstract Award provides $100 and a 2-year complimentary membership to The American Physiological Society to undergraduate students who present their research at the Experimental Biology meeting. The David S. Bruce Excellence in Undergraduate Research Award recipients receive $400 and a certificate, and are chosen based on the quality of the poster and oral presentation of the poster at the Experimental Biology meeting. Kristin Haraldsdottir, predoctoral trainee in the Eldridge lab, received the Skatrud/Rankin Travel Award for her abstract entitled, "Effect of inhaled nitric oxide on exercise capacity and pulmonary gas exchange in adult survivors of preterm birth." This award, sponsored by the John Rankin Memorial Fund, supports conference-related expenses (travel, registration, etc.) for pre- and post-doctoral students who have abstracts accepted for presentation at scholarly conferences. These stipends are provided in memory of the valuable contributions to mentoring of research trainees provided by John Rankin, MD (1923-1981) and James B. Skatrud, MD (1947-2006). Dr. Rankin was chairman of the UW Department of Preventive Medicine (1968-1981) and Dr. Skatrud was chief of Respiratory Diseases (UW Department of Medicine) (1981-2004). Congratulations to Atzie, Taylor, and Kristin!

Amy Peterson, MD, Awarded Wisconsin Partnership Program Funding

Posted: April 29, 2016

The Wisconsin Partnership Program Partnership Education and Research Committee (PERC) recently awarded Amy Peterson, MD, an Opportunity Grant in the amount of $100,000 over two years for her project, "Improved Diagnosis of Familial Hypercholesterolemia in Children and Families through the Wisconsin Pediatric Lipid Consortium (WPLC)." The WPLC is a proposed multi-institutional collaboration of pediatric health care clinics which will prospectively monitor the diagnostic and treatment patterns of children with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). The aims of the WPLC are to: 1) determine the current statewide patterns for diagnosis and treatment of pediatric FH through development of a statewide database, 2) measure the impact of the diagnosis of FH in children on the identification of additional at-risk family members with FH, and 3) develop educational tools to aid pediatric health care providers in screening, diagnosis, and treatment of FH in children.

Ralphe Lab Researcher Dan Smelter Receives NIH Predoctoral Fellowship

Posted: April 29, 2016

Congratulations to Dan Smelter, predoctoral student in the lab of J. Carter Ralphe, MD, on funding of his Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship (F31) from the National Institutes of Health, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NIH-NHLBI). This 3-year, pre-doctoral fellowship, in the amount of $91,677, is under the sponsorship of Dr. Carter Ralphe. In his project, "The role of the C3 domain of myosin binding protein-C in the pathogenesis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy," the goal is to determine the effect of two highly prevalent and pathogenic mutations in a contractile protein of the heart, cardiac myosin binding protein-C, and how they lead to disease. The objective of understanding the underlying disease mechanism is to discover new treatment approaches that can prevent the development of the disease.

UW Research Team Moves Cancer Immunotherapy Another Step Ahead

Posted: March 14, 2016

Myriam N. Bouchlaka, PhD, and Christian Capitini, MD, are authors on a new study that provides a key step in monitoring if, and how, the body's own cancer-killing components are working during immunotherapy.

So-called natural killer (NK) cell cancer therapy is the subject of several recent and current clinical trials, with some, but not all, patients' tumors shrinking in response to the treatment.

In the study, published in the journal OncoImmunology, the research team combined NK cell immunotherapy with the labeling agent fluorine-19 in an attempt to monitor the cancer-killing cells in an animal model that could be safely translated to humans.

They showed that the labeling had no detrimental effects on the ability of those cells to kill cancer cells in the lab. They then injected labeled cells directly into mice harboring human cancers and, using a specialized MRI to detect fluorine-19, were able to detect the labeled cells for several days in those tumors.

Steven Koslov, MD, is Lead Author on Primary Care Transformation Study

Posted: March 8, 2016

A research team at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health discovered that an overhaul of the UW Health primary care system resulted in increased patient satisfaction, improved clinical safety metrics and publicly reported preventive-care outcomes.

The Department of Pediatrics' Steven Koslov, MD, was the lead author of the study, which was published in the Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation.

The researchers reviewed the process of UW Health’s primary care transformation, which included family medicine and community health, general pediatrics and adolescent medicine and internal medicine. The goal of the redesign was to achieve the “triple aim” of better patient care, improved population health and reduced costs.

The study suggests that the UW Health experience could be useful for other academic health centers planning to redesign primary care.

Study authors are members of the UW Health Primary Care Academics Transforming Healthcare (PATH) collaborative, a multidisciplinary coalition of physicians and change leaders who aim to bridge primary care clinical transformation and rigorous scientific study in order to improve our health system for the benefit of patients and communities.

Bruce Klein's Research Reveals How Fungi Hijack the Body's Immune System

Posted: March 1, 2016

Research led by Bruce Klein, MD, has uncovered a clever way fungi can hijack the body’s attempts to clear a fungal infection. Enzymes produced by the fungus mimic cell signals that temper white blood-cell development, normally used by the body to manage inflammatory responses.

In a recent study published in the journal Cell Host & Microbe, researchers were able to render this fungal strategy ineffective with a treatment of sitagliptin, a pharmaceutical enzyme inhibitor approved for treatment of type 2 diabetes.

While this research was conducted in vitro and in a mouse model, Dr. Klein and collaborators want to learn if this enzyme is present in human fungal infections as well. If so, this research could lead to a valuable weapon to fight such infections.

Fungal infections arise in people with compromised immune systems, organ or stem-cell recipients, cancer patients and those on medication that weakens the immune system. However, most fungal infections actually occur in previously healthy individuals that breathe in mold spores from the soil.
