In the News: Genes Causing Osteoporosis, Residents’ Longer Work Shifts, Pediatric Spinal Deformity, Ventilation Strategy for Preterm Infants, Pediatric Cell Atlas

As spring slowly arrives here in Philadelphia, take a deep breath of fresh air and catch up on our research that’s been making publishing news. This week we’re covering genes that cause osteoporosis, the effects of longer work shifts for first-year residents, and the project to map every cell in a child’s body. You’ll also learn about respiratory support in preterm infants and research results that Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia investigators published in the Public Library of Science (PLOS) One.

Risk Genes for Osteoporosis May Lead to Future Treatments

Scientists have harnessed powerful data analysis tools and three-dimensional studies of genomic geography to implicate new risk genes for osteoporosis, the chronic bone-weakening condition that affects millions of people. Knowing the causative genes may later open the door to more effective treatments.

Celebrating the Research Legacies of Drs. Barbara Schmidt and Haresh Kirpalani

neonatology

The Division of Neonatology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia celebrated the remarkable research careers and retirement of two pioneers in neonatal research and medicine, Barbara Schmidt, MD, and Haresh Kirpalani, MD, with a clinical research symposium May 9 and 10. Held at the Union League of Philadelphia, the event brought together the world’s leading experts in neonatal research and evidence-based medicine, many of whom have worked closely with Drs. Schmidt and Kirpalani as trainees, co-authors, and colleagues in the last few decades.
