MCG students selected to participate in yearlong NIH research program
Dr. Valera Hudson, a nationally recognized leader in medical education, has been named department chair.
Scientists explore how high blood pressure hurts cognition.
Oxidative stress can help tumors thrive, but one way novel cancer treatments work is by pushing levels to the point where it instead helps them die, scientists report.
Silence is golden when it comes to how our brains work
Sullivan selected for two national scientific honors.
When trauma spills the contents of our cell powerhouses, it can evoke a potentially deadly immune response much like a severe bacterial infection.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (June 6, 2018) – Immune cells that are first responders to a traumatic brain injury appear to also contribute to the secondary damage that can occur even days later, scientists say. The NETs – or neutrophil extracellular traps – these immune cells cast at the site of a TBI can become...
Dr. Kathryn Bollinger, ophthalmologist, glaucoma specialist and retinal cell biologist, is working on protections from glaucoma.
Dr. Daniel Albo, a surgical oncologist, physician-scientist and educator who is vice chair of the Department of Surgery at the Medical College of Georgia, has been named department chair.
High levels of a protein activated by vitamin K and associated with cardiovascular disease when it isn’t, has been found in the blood of African-Americans on dialysis, investigators report.
For his compassionate healthcare, Matthew Rivera-Bloodworth has been named this year’s winner of Augusta University’s John F. Beard Award.
A new and early target for treating pulmonary hypertension appears to be an enzyme that’s normally key to energy production but destructive in the face of this high blood pressure inside your lungs.
New research published in Cancer Immunology Research by Drs. Esteban Celis and Hussein Sultan of the Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University could serve as the stepping-stone in constructing vaccines with a greater likelihood of finding and attacking tumors in the human body.
Immune cells that are ready to take action against invaders like bacteria have been found in women’s breast milk, researchers say.

This pantry staple may help reduce the destructive inflammation of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
An experimental compound appears to improve stroke outcome by reducing the destructive inflammation that can continue months after a stroke, scientists report.
The high estrogen levels that typically afford younger women protection from cardiovascular disease appear to instead multiply their risk if they have type 1 diabetes, researchers say.
AUGUSTA, Ga. – A receptor on our immune cells that can detect both the heat of a red chili pepper and the extreme physical heat of a pizza oven may help protect the brain following a traumatic brain injury, scientists say. A third of patients hospitalized with a TBI die from damage that is actually...
