Canton wins Wayne Bardin International Travel Award

2024-04-01
(Press-News.org) WASHINGTON—The Endocrine Society selected Ana Canton, M.D., Ph.D., as the recipient of its 2024 C. Wayne Bardin, MD, International Travel Award for her outstanding ENDO abstract and her research contributions to the care of patients with pediatric endocrine disorders.

The C. Wayne Bardin, MD, International Travel Award was created in honor of Past President Wayne Bardin, who made remarkable research contributions to both reproductive physiology and contraception throughout his long career. As the winner, Canton received a $3,000 travel grant for ENDO and complimentary meeting registration.

Canton is an endocrinologist and a researcher in the Division of Endocrinology at the School of Medicine, University of São Paulo in São Paulo, Brazil. She graduated in Medicine and specialized in Endocrinology and Metabolism. She completed her Ph.D. at the University of São Paulo in the field of growth disorders, initiating her experience in clinical and genetic research studies, which was continued through a post-doctorate program at the Saint-Antoine Research Center, Sorbonne University in Paris, France.

She was also a member of the First International Consensus Statement of Diagnosis and Management of Silver-Russell syndrome. In 2018, she was awarded a four-year grant as a post-doctorate researcher at the School of Medicine, University of São Paulo, initiating her clinical and genetic research studies in pubertal disorders, especially precocious puberty.

She has participated in several publications in leading endocrine journals. Recently, she was the first author of the publication identifying MECP2 gene as a novel monogenic factor in girls with central precocious puberty with or without neurodevelopment disorders.

Canada lynx historic range in US likely wider than previously thought

Canada lynx historic range in US likely wider than previously thought
2024-04-01
PULLMAN, Wash. – A broader past could mean a brighter future for Canada lynx in the U.S., according to recent research. The study, published in the journal Biological Conservation, indicates that lynx might do well in the future in parts of Utah, central Idaho and the Yellowstone National Park region, even considering climate change and the lack of lynx in those areas now. Using a model validated by historic records, researchers first found that in 1900, Canada lynx had more suitable habitat in the U.S. than the few northern corners of the country where they are found currently. The study showed ...

Study documents safety, improvements from stem cell therapy after spinal cord injury

Study documents safety, improvements from stem cell therapy after spinal cord injury
2024-04-01
ROCHESTER, Minn. — A Mayo Clinic study shows stem cells derived from patients' own fat are safe and may improve sensation and movement after traumatic spinal cord injuries. The findings from the phase 1 clinical trial appear in Nature Communications. The results of this early research offer insights on the potential of cell therapy for people living with spinal cord injuries and paralysis for whom options to improve function are extremely limited. In the study of 10 adults, the research team noted seven participants demonstrated ...

Simple equations clarify cloud climate conundrum

Simple equations clarify cloud climate conundrum
2024-04-01
New analysis based on simple equations has reduced uncertainty about how clouds will affect future climate change. Clouds have two main effects on global temperature – cooling the planet by reflecting sunlight, and warming it by acting as insulation for Earth’s radiation.  The impact of clouds is the largest area of uncertainty in global warming predictions. In the new study, researchers from the University of Exeter and the Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique in Paris created a model that predicts how ...

A high-boost and high-efficiency DC power converter

A high-boost and high-efficiency DC power converter
2024-04-01
A new electrical power converter design achieves a much higher efficiency at lower cost and maintenance than before. The direct current voltage boost converter developed by Kobe University is poised to be a significant contribution to the further development of electric and electronic components across power generation, health care, mobility and information technology. Devices that harvest energy from sunlight or vibrations, or power medical devices or hydrogen-fueled cars have one key component in common. This so-called “boost converter” converts low-voltage direct current input into high-voltage direct current output. Because it is such a ubiquitous ...

Study suggests high blood pressure could begin in childhood

2024-04-01
Study suggests high blood pressure may originate early in life and that preventing overweight and obesity during the developmental years could help reduce the substantial disease burden associated with high blood pressure in later life. *This is an early press release from the European Congress on Obesity (ECO 2024) Venice 12-15 May. Please credit the Congress if using this material* Children and teenagers living with overweight or obesity are more likely to have high blood pressure as adults (aged 50-64 years), suggesting the processes behind the condition could begin as early as childhood, suggests new research being ...

Study shows Mpox (monkeypox) antibodies wane within a year of vaccination

2024-03-30
New research to be presented at this year’s European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID 2024) in Barcelona, Spain (27-30 April) shows that the antibodies produced by Modified Vaccinia virus Ankara - Bavarian Nordic (MVA-BN) vaccination against mpox wane significantly within a year of receiving the vaccination – but in people with pre-existing immunity due to childhood smallpox vaccination in childhood, antibody levels remain high in almost all cases. The study is presented by PhD student Dr. Marc Shamier, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, Netherlands, from a research team led by Dr Rory de Vries. During the 2022-2023 ...
