Clinical Trials Pilot Project Program LSOM Office for Research by Chris Valdez (Valdezc10@uthscsa.edu)
The Office for Research in the School of Medicine is supporting Clinical Trials Pilot Projects with up to $75k per year for two years of funding. We are committed to expanding the impact of clinical trials research through multi-investigator teams that create new knowledge, treatments, and patents. To embrace team collaboration, the multi-investigator team should consist of a primary investigator, co-investigator, and wherever appropriate involve a LSOM leaner such as an advanced medical student or resident/fellow.

Development of a Peripheral Blood Transcriptomic Gene Signature to Predict Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia
Presented by Alvaro Moreira, MD
Director, Neonatal Regenerative and Precision Laboratory Director, Physician Assistant Neonatology Residency Co-Director, Neonatal Nutrition and Bone Institute
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is the most common lung disease of extreme prematurity, yet mechanisms that associate with or identify neonates with increased susceptibility for BPD are largely unknown. Combining artificial intelligence with gene expression data is a novel approach that may assist in better understanding mechanisms underpinning BPD. Objective: Develop an early peripheral blood transciptomic signature that can predict preterm neonates at risk for developing BPD.
Virtually Friday, February 17th from 9:00AM - 10:00AM
