A paper from the labs of Yan Xu, PhD, and Pei Tang, PhD, in partnership with collaborators at Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, and Shanghai Jiaotong University, was published this month in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (full text link below):
Congratulations to Professors Pei Tang, PhD, and Yan Xu, PhD, whose abstract “Preclinical Evaluation of a Novel Glycinergic Analgesic for Treatment of Chronic Pain in Rodents” was accepted with the distinction of Best of Meeting Research Award for presentation at the Association of University Anesthesiologists (AUA) 2021 Annual Meeting. The Best of Meeting Research Award is awarded to one high scoring abstract submitted for the meeting regardless of years in practice or serving as a scientist.
A paper from the labs of Pei Tang, PhD and Yan Xu, PhD was recently published in the renowned open-access journal Nature Communications. The full text of the article can be accessed via the link in the below citation.
Congratulations to Yan Xu, PhD, who has been appointed the Peter Winter Professor of Anesthesiology. This endowed professorship is named in honor of Peter M. Winter, MD, the renowned second chair of our department.
Congratulations to Yan Xu, PhD, who was invited to serve as a Visiting Professor with the University of Virginia Department of Anesthesiology in Charlottesville, VA on December 9, 2015. Dr. Xu will present three lectures during his visit: “Systemic Immune Modulations of Neuronal Injuries after Cardiac Arrest and Resuscitation,” “RELIEPH: a New Approach to Treating Chronic Pain,” and “Structure-based Drug Discovery and Glycine Receptor as a Therapeutic Target for Pain.”
The article “Percolation Model of Sensory Transmission and Loss of Consciousness Under General Anesthesia” by the research team of Yan Xu, PhD and Pei Tang, PhD (Zhou DW, Mowrey DD, Tang P, Xu Y) was published in the September issue of the journal Physical Review Letters (2015; 115(10): 108103).
“Cellular Registration without Behavioral Recall of Olfactory Sensory Input under General Anesthesia” (Samuelsson AR, Brandon NR, Tang P, Xu Y. Anesthesiology 2014; 120(4):890-905) reveals new findings that suggest the brain receives and registers sensory information at the cellular level while anesthetized without behavioral reporting of the same information after recovering from anesthesia. In the study, rats were exposed to a specific odor while under general anesthesia.
