Seeking Two Branch Chiefs for the Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biological Chemistry Division at NIGMS

We’re recruiting for two accomplished individuals with interest and experience in the scientific areas that comprise the Biochemistry and Bio-related Chemistry (BBC) and the Pharmacological and Physiological Sciences (PPS) Branches of the Division of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biological Chemistry. Successful applicants will be responsible for scientific and administrative planning, evaluation, and management of one of the branches, along with supervision of program directors with portfolios of funded research and small business grants. Each Chief will additionally handle a portfolio of research grants consistent with his/her own scientific background. The BBC Branch supports basic research in the areas of biochemistry, including enzyme catalysis and regulation, bioenergetics and redox biochemistry, and glycoconjugates. It also supports research in the areas of bio-related chemistry, such as organic synthesis and methodology, as well as bioinorganic chemistry, chemical and synthetic biology, and biotechnology. The PPS Branch supports research in pharmacology, anesthesiology, and the physiological sciences. Studies range from the molecular to organismal level, including drug metabolism, interactions with receptors and channels, signal transduction mechanisms, and mediators of inflammation. The physiological sciences include clinical investigations of the whole body response to injury, trauma, and sepsis. Applicants may be from within or outsid...

Authors: Keneisenuo K, Choudhary OP, Priyanka P, Kalita PC, Kalita A, Doley PJ, Chaudhary JK Abstract There is no previously reported information on the applied anatomy and clinical significance of the maxillofacial and mandibular regions of the barking deer and sambar deer. Therefore, the present study was designed to provide some important clinical landmarks related to tracking of the infraorbital, mental and mandibular nerves with its clinical implications in regional anaesthesia in both the species. In the present study, the distance between the most lateral bulging of the facial tuberosity to the infraorbital ...

In this study, it was aimed to examine the forelimb arteries in Southern Karaman and Hasak sheep breeds. Totally 8 Southern Karaman and 8 Hasak sheep were obtained from Konya Bahri Dagdas International Agricultural Institute. The sheep were anesthetized with xylazine and ketamine and extravasated by cutting the arteria carotis communis in the neck area of the sheep. The forelimbs of the sheep separated from the body were fixed in 10% formaldehyde solution and then dissections were made and the course and branching of the arteries were examined. It was determined that the arteria brachialis was divided into two main branche...

Authors: Stamenkovic DM, Selvaraj S, Venkatraman S, Arshad A, Rancic NK, Dragojevic-Simic VM, Miljkovic MN, Cattano D Abstract The physical and psychological fragility of patients with psychiatric illness poses critical importance in the preoperative assessment, evaluation, and choice of premedication, which includes regular therapy, as well as concerns about polypharmacy with possible interactions of anesthetics, analgesics, and psychiatric medications. A considerable effort is to reduce risks for exacerbations or relapses of imminent illness in the postoperative period. In this narrative review, the goal was also...

Pneumoperitoneum with carbon dioxide insufflation can cause unfavorable hemodynamic effects due to catecholamine and vasopressin release. Aim: To examine the effects of stellate ganglion block on hemodynamic response and postoperative pain. Material and methods: In a prospective double blinded randomized parallel study we included 40 patients with ASA physical status I and II, aged between 18 and 50 years with a gynecologic problem candidate for laparosc...

Hello SDN, there are a few questions that I would love to get input about in starting a new practice in the NJ/NY metro area. Here is my situation... I am anesthesia trained and completing a pain fellowship at an Ivy-league pain fellowship. I already have a very-well paying anesthesia &part-time pain job lined up after graduation, however after COVID it seems that it will be primarily anesthesia due to their needs. It is a low-call frequency position so I will have time to pursue my pain... Starting a "part-time" practice
