Relevance

Cardiovascular and lung vascular diseases are important causes of morbidity and mortality in the US. A multidisciplinary group of MD, PhD, and MD/PhD investigators will develop a research center focusing on understanding the biology of vascular injury. Improved understanding of mechanisms of blood vessel injury promotes development of new and innovative treatments. This Vascular Biology COBRE will be first of its kind in Rhode Island, a state with a high burden of both heart and lung disease.

RI-idEA - March 2016

The Rhode Island IDeA symposium is a gathering to share best practices and better coordinate the translational research and faculty development programs across the state. Keynote presenter Mark Gillespie, PhD Chair of Pharmacology at the University of South Alabama presented Oxidant-DNA interaction in the life and death of cells: A tale of two genomes. A second combined Keynote presentation was given by Stephen Fiore, PhD, Director, Cognitive Sciences, UCF Department of Philosophy & Kara Hall, PhD, Science of Research and Technology Branch (SRTB), Behavioral Research Program (BRP) NIH. Together they presented Enhancing Collaboration in Cross Disciplinary Science.
