Media Coverage

The work done by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine faculty members (and even some students) is regularly highlighted in newspapers, online media outlets and more. Below you’ll find links to articles and videos of Feinberg in the news.

The impact “is large enough to essentially negate the home-field advantage,” says study co-author Ravi Allada, a neurobiologist at Northwestern University and a Chicago Cubs fan. He and his colleagues found that jet lag affects both home and away teams, “suggesting it was a real effect, and significant in terms of the size of that effect.”

Researchers say they’ve documented an unseen drag on major league baseball players that can wipe out home field advantage, make pitchers give up more home runs, and take some punch out of a team’s bats. The culprit: jet lag. Dr. Ravi Allada of Northwestern University said he and his colleagues wanted to study the effects of body clock disruptions on human performance. So they chose baseball, a game with plenty of performance measures gathered from hundreds of games a year, played by people who get little chance to settle in to new time zones when they travel.

So far, scientists can take a piece of ovarian tissue, freeze it and then re-implant it into a patient to produce mature eggs. That process has resulted in at least 100 births so far, mostly by adult patients who were treated for cancer, said Dr. Teresa Woodruff, a reproductive endocrinologist researching the issue at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. Yet this process does not work for all patients, and researchers say that it is unlikely to work for trans people who transition with hormone therapy. So they started to look for ways to grow that tissue in a petri dish, so it can develop into a mature egg. In November, Woodruff co-authored a study in the journal Nature that did just that. “We can continue to develop that technology and eventually, hopefully, this will transfer to all the individuals who are looking for fertility intervention,” Woodruff said.

Despite being a major health threat, obesity isn’t widely discussed in U.S. medical schools, a new study suggests. Obesity is barely mentioned in U.S. medical students’ licensing exams, according to the researchers at Northwestern University School of Medicine in Chicago.

Finally, it’s possible that one of the ingredients in your balm could cause an allergic reaction, says Dr. Roopal Kundu, an associate professor of dermatology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. But this is true of pretty much anything you put on or in your body. “Everyone’s allergic to something,” Friedman says. “Considering how many people use lip balm, it’s not surprising that some people would experience a reaction.”

Dr. Edward Schaeffer, chair of the department of urology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, said the study allows doctors to catch problems much earlier than in the past. “By doing that, you may be able to help patients be more proactive about their follow-up, and their subsequent treatment after radiation therapy,” he said.
