New Departmental Research Grant Award Raquel Bartz, MD, Assistant Professor was awarded a five-year $593,189 Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (K08) from the National Institutes of Health entitled “Mitochondrial DNA Repair and Biogenesis”. This career development award establishes the PI with advanced training in molecular physiology in preparation for a career as an independent investigator in the area of sepsis-related organ failure. Dr. Bartz will investigate the role of the mitochondrial DNA repair (mtDNA) enzyme, OGG1 and nuclear coactivators, PGC-1α and its family members, in mtDNA maintenance and biogenesis in a murine Staphylococcus sepsis model. MtDNA is a critical target of oxidative and nitrosative damage from cytokine and chemokine release, and mitochondrial biogenesis is one of the critical repair mechanisms.

“Best Practices in Pediatric Anesthesia Care” September 25, 2010 The William & Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education | Chapel Hill, UNC Infants and young children constitute a high risk population for undergoing anesthesia and surgery due to unique anatomic, physiologic, and developmental differences compared to adults. A collaborative approach to pediatric anesthesia requires that all team members function with the most up-to-date information on caring for this challenging population. This conference will provide the anesthesia care team with current information on a variety of common pediatric anesthesia problems.
