Bhavani receives multiple awards and fellowships
Congratulation to Bhavani Sahu, PhD, who has been awarded the 2018 Daniel T. O'Connor Young Investigator Award from the Catecholamine Society, and a Travel Research Fellowship from The Journal of Cell Science funded by the Company of Biologist to support a short research stay in the Lab of Dr Mahata at UCSD.
Dr. Alessandro Bartolomucci and Dr Valter Tucci (IIT, Italy) have been awarded a research grant from the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research for the project entitled "Physiological and genetic determinants on hyperthermia andhyperphagia in PWS"
Dr. Alessandro Bartolomucci has been awarded the 2017 Winston and Maxine Wallin Neuroscience Discovery Award for the project entitled "Sympathetic neuromodulaiton of borwn adipose tissue functions in obesity."
The 2016-17 Fesler-Lampert Chair in Aging Studies, Center on Aging, University of Minnesota, has been awarded to Alessandro Bartolomucci
Cheryl Cero is recipient of the Doctorate Dissertation Fellowship Award, University of Minnesota
October 4, 2013
Alessandro Bartolomucci presents a talk entitled "Social Stress, Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes" at the XV Italian Society for Neuroscience meeting. He also chaired the plenary lecture by Sabrina Diano, Yale University and the symposium entitled "Neuroscience of Diabetes".
July 16, 2013
Alessandro Bartolomucci presents a talk entitled "VGF-derived peptides: functional role in obesity and diabetes" at the International Symposium on Chromaffin Cell Biology, Rouen, France.
May 15, 2013
Maria Razzoli, Senior Scientist, is selected to present her work entitled Phase shift of adrenal and pituitary clock gene in mice under chronic social stress at the 4thVisscher Symposium, IBP, UMN.
Cheryl Cero, Graduate student, is selected to present her work entitled The VGF derived peptide TLQP-21: functional dissection and structural analysis of a new pro-lipolytic and anti-obesity molecule at the 2013 Minnesota Diabetes Research Day.
William Engeland's and Bartolomucci`s Lab have been awarded the Wallin Neuroscience Discovery Awards 2012 with a project entitled The Adrenal Clock: a Target for Stress-Induced Depression.
As part of a team effort to understand the role of the adrenal clock on stress-induced disease Engeland and Bartolomucci Lab will use a well-established mouse model of chronic psychosocial stress to ask the question if stress affects the phase of the adrenal clock genes and if this affects cort secretion and is associated with individual's vulnerability to psychological and metabolic disturbances.
A special issue entitled The Obese Species (Guest editors Alessandro Bartolomucci, Stefano Parmigiani, R. John Rodgers, Antonio Vidal-Puig, Sarah E. Allan and Vivian Siegel) is published by the journal Disease, Models and Mechanisms. This Special Issue aims to provide an authoritative update on obesity that embraces the multidisciplinary spirit of the workshop held in Erice in October 2011. It is not intended to be a comprehensive account of the workshop's proceedings, and also includes contributions from authors from the wider obesity field.
Bartolomucci Lab will lead a team at UofM and Mayo Clinic to understand the biochemical structure, identify the mechanism of pro-lipolytic and anti-obesity effects of the VGF-derived peptide TLQP-21. The team includes Alessandro Bartolomucci (PI, UofM), John Miles (Co-PI, Mayo), Gianluigi Veglia (Co-I, UofM) and Ludmila Vulchanova (Co-I, UofM).
