Abstract. From 2008 to 2012, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fogarty International Clinical Research Fellows Program (FICRF) provided 1-year mentored research training at low- and middle-income country sites for American and international post-doctoral health professionals. We examined the FICRF applicant pool, proposed research topics, selection process, and characteristics of enrollees to assess trends in global health research interest and factors associated with applicant competitiveness. The majority (58%) of 67 US and 57 international Fellows were women, and 83% of Fellows had medical degrees. Most applicants were in clinical fellowships (41%) or residencies (24%). More applicants proposing infectious disease projects were supported (59%) than applicants proposing non-communicable disease (NCD) projects (41%), although projects that combined both topic areas were most successful (69%). The numbers of applicants proposing research on NCDs and the numbers of these applicants awarded
HIV, diabetes and hypertension are major determinants of the massive and rising burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases in Africa and provision of accessible effective care for these conditions is probably Africas biggest health challenge.
to the opportunity to understand environmental influences as well as genetic influences He also, while we were there, was doing - had just completed the 20 years of the doctors smoking study You know my parents smoked when I was growing up They smoked Camels, because three out of four doctors recommended Camels You know, you had doctors in white coats recommending it And in 20 years we had, you know, tremendous data on the importance of smoking and lung cancer And when he made these observations we said to him, Sir Richard, why dont you go out and do something about it? Why dont you talk to the Brits? Its the biggest risk factor for cancer Why dont you have them reduce smoking in the UK? And he said, You know Roger, he says, Im an epidemiologist, Im not someone in policy And so we dont do this; you know, Ive provided the evidence and its for the politicians. And if you look at the slide from Richard Peto you can see that in the UK cancer mortality has come down for lung cancer ...
A computer-based method for combining investment recommendations of individual research providers such as stock analysts. The method includes providing a server running a research team management module. A list of individual research providers is displayed on a client node linked to the server network. A research team is generated based on user input including a number of the research providers. Team rules are assigned to the team defining an algorithm for processing recommendations from the members of the team. Recommendations for securities are retrieved for the research providers on the team, and team recommendations are generated by applying the team rules to the recommendations. Team recommendations are reported to the client node for guiding investments. Processing of the individual recommendations may include applying differing weights to the positive and negative recommendations and combining the weighted recommendations, with the weights being user-selected differentiating strengths of members
The scenarios suggest varied outcomes depending on land use choices made by households and the land use rules adopted at community level. It is important to note that the simulations produce aggregate results, while actual results for different households would vary depending on many factors. As we have seen above, there is considerable stratification in this population and that would influence the effects of land use changes. In general, however, if the pastoral economy is privileged, then access to grazing land will be retained - for example by adopting the reciprocal access to grazing land rule. In this case, grazing orbits will not be reduced and livestock numbers will not decline (at least, not for this reason). In this scenario, however, land devoted to crop production will face limits since there is a trade-off between retaining pasture and growing crops - both cannot be done simultaneously on the same piece of land. Thus, the baseline scenario retains access for grazing but puts limits ...

The Garden House of Ostia was constructed in the 2nd century, in the city of Ostia, whose population reached 50,000 at its peak. (See the What in the World comment at the beginning of Chapter 7.) This city was a major port of Rome, which was about 25 km away. The Garden Houses are of interest because of the geometry used in its construction. The key to its construction, according to archaeologists Donald and Carol Watts, is a sacred cut. In searching the records of the architect Vitruvius they found that the basic pattern begins with a square (called the reference square) and its diagonals. Next quarter circles centered on the corners of the square are drawn, each with a radius equal to half of the diagonal. The arcs pass through the center of the square and intersect two adjoining sides; together they cut the sides into three segments, with the central segment being larger than the other two. By connecting the intersection points, you can divide the reference square into nine parts, as ...

The one thing that I learned about myself is that I place no value in praise. Ive won my fair share of awards and recognition. Today my senior told me that he really appreciated that our lists were so up to date, and on all the services hed been on, hed never had a list so well done. Im sure he meant it in a complimentary way. I couldnt have cared less. Why should I be praised for doing what Im supposed to do? Thats ridiculous. If I did something outstanding, then sure, I would like some thanks. But please, for doing what Im supposed to do, I expect nothing. Ive always believed that when someone trusts you to do something, thats sacred. That means you do it, and you do it right ...
A few years back, I had it bad. I was clinically depressed, and all of the sorrows and tortured issues of my life came flooding back to me, and I wanted to die. I just wanted everything to be over. I wanted to lose all the pain and heartache and self-pity. And one domino kept knocking down another. A girl rejected me. A friend abandoned me. A test was nearly too hard for me. And things just got worse and worse and worse, till I very sternly questioned what it was that made me get out of bed and bother to be alive ...

At Mulago Hospital, its hot outside, like a particularly humid August day back in the Midwest. Doctors and nurses make their rounds through the halls, checking on patients, making treatment adjustments, diagnosing diseases. Amy Tran, a dual Pharm.D., M.P.H. student from the University of Minnesota, takes notice of the differences in the resource-limited setting as she follows pharmacist Winnie Nambatya throughout her day at Mulago Hospital and its partner university, Makarere University. The limitations and differences dont discourage her, but rather inspire.

A meta-analysis was used to aggregate results from studies examining the relationship between customer misbehavior and emotional labor. Analysis of 21 studies (N = 12,299) met the criteria for inclusion in the meta-analysis. The result of meta-analysis showed: customer misbehavior had significant effects on employee emotional labor. Specifically, customer misbehavior had a positive correlation to surface acting, and had a negative correlation to deep acting. Moderator analyses revealed that cultural difference has significant moderating effects on the relationship between customer misbehavior and emotional labor (including surface acting and deep acting). In addition, the correlation between customer misbehavior and surface acting in the context of China is less than it in the context of other countries.

However, the Next Gen methods come out far ahead if you multiplex a group of individuals together in the same sequencing reaction. This is not possible with Sanger methods since the sequence is read from the average of a large number of molecules. Then the question becomes how deep can you multiplex while still producing enough reads from each individual research subject to achieve the depth of coverage needed? Our Illumina GAII currently produces about 2 million (usable) 35 bp reads per lane, but we are ramping up toward 5 million 50 bp reads with the latest upgrades ...

Indeed, 15 of the universities studied had created such a centre, and 10 of those succeeded in offering higher funding for neglected diseases, Alex Lankowski, a BostonUniversity student that participated in the UAEM research, told IPS.. Over the past three decades, some 1,556 new drugs were created, UAEM reports, but only 21 - less than two percent - were for neglected diseases.. Universities are non-profit institutions operating in the public interest, heavily funded by government grants - meaning taxpayer-funded sources - so students know this means they have a special responsibility to serve the public good, Rachel Kiddell-Monroe, president of the UAEM board, said Thursday at the report cards unveiling.. Universities regularly position themselves as places of learning, operating for the good of the world. Unfortunately, leading research institutions are not living up to their missions … So, students are demanding that these schools start taking concrete steps.. The UAEM ranking does ...
A preliminary analysis of baseline data was conducted in January 2006, which indicated that the Positive Choice intervention achieved significant reductions in drug use. These findings were reported in a poster presentation at the XVI International AIDS Conference in Toronto, Canada, in August 2006. A final analysis of outcomes data was conducted in fall 2006 (September - December). Aggregate results from all five study sites are summarized below.. We found a high prevalence of risky behaviors in our sample (497/918, or 54%) and achieved high retention for follow-up in both groups (,80%). We found significant elimination of any drug use in the intervention group at both follow-ups. Among all participants who reported drug use at baseline, 66% of intervention participants continued their drug use at 3-month follow-up compared to 85% of control participants (OR 0.356, p,0.01). At 6-month follow-up, 59% of intervention participants continued their drug use compared to 88% of the control group ...
Genetic and environmental determinants of altered cellular function, disease state, and drug response are increasingly studied using time-resolved
Materials and methods: a retrospective study was undertaken over a five-year period at St Thomas Hospital London. Maternal incidental findings were recorded from all clinical reports of all fetal MRIs undertaken during this period (those performed for both clinical reasons and women who had volunteered as healthy controls in research studies). Fetal incidental findings were recorded only in cases where women with uncomplicated pregnancies participating as healthy volunteers ...
Purpose: Generation of incidental findings (IFs) from whole genome and exome sequencing raise several questions about the return of IFs to donors in the research setting. One important aspect that is highly understudied is whether individuals from the general public value the return of IFs and what individual characteristics are associated with these values. Methods: We used a willingness to pay (WTP) survey-an economic tool-to evaluate the values individuals place on the information provided by a genetic counseling consultation providing IFs for cancer causing genes. An online survey was administered through ResearchMatch, a national registry, in June 2015. Along with demographics, attitudinal and health-related questions, survey respondents were asked WTP questions to reveal the values for IFs information specifically for cancer causing genes. Results: The average WTP of 94 respondents was $161 (95% CI: $132-202) for a one-time IF consultation for cancer causing genes. Income was significantly

Sigh - My worlds just collided in this post. In the brief moments when I am not obsessed with books, Im a global health research and education person. Zika has been on my radar for much longer because I am fortunate to work with those people who are trying to stay ahead of these things. This is a very scary disease, primarily because it is a multi-vector disease (people and insects) and the potential impacts of an infection may be life altering. Not to mention the fact that you can be infected and not realize it, creating risks to others in your life and your community. Finally - we dont yet really know how long it can live in the body past the initial infection. Terrifying on lots of levels. It is very easy to feel panicky or to want to do a little strategic hiding. The reality is that given the nature of the infection, there are going to be some areas where risk is higher but there will be NO areas that are going to be immune. We are a mobile population these days so we will continue to ...

This law is just putting warm bodies into offices, seemingly filling a need but it is dangerous. The untrained doctor will miss serious diagnoses, and will test for things that a seasoned doctor of just a few years would recognize is not necessary to test for, thus resulting in more overuse, as well as incidental findings that will lead to further testing that was never needed and ultimately risk for the patient. The benefit to patients will be small at best but offer false security because now theyve seen a doctor. This is at best checking a box that theyve dealt with the problem, but in no way an effective solution and could cause more harm then benefit ...
