This is an update to the Jan. 28, 2020 episode about Northwestern microbiologist Karla Satchell’s effort to lead an investigation into the structure biology of the components of COVID-19. The goal is to ultimately understand how to stop it from replicating in human cells through a medication or vaccine.
In mid-March, the early days of Chicago’s COVID-19 outbreak, older adults with multiple chronic conditions didn’t think the disease would affect them and reported not changing their behaviors, according to the results of a Northwestern Medicine study. Michael Wolf, PhD, who led this study, explains the results and how public health interventions are needed to protect vulnerable populations.
Judith Moskowitz, PhD, MPH, is a social psychologist and professor of Medical Social Sciences at Feinberg who studies the impact of positive emotion on health-related and other life stress. She discusses her research and things you can do to increase positivity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As an epidemiologist and infectious disease physician, Chad Achenbach, MD, MPH, has shared his expertise on a variety of global public health crises such as Ebola and Zika outbreaks. In this episode, he sheds light on the global emergence, epidemiology and response to COVID-19.
Abel Kho, MD, is the director of the new Institute for Augmented Intelligence in Medicine at Feinberg. He discusses his vision for the institute and how AI can enhance healthcare.
In this episode we share a recent Northwestern Medical Grand Rounds presentation called: “COVID-19 An Update on the Current Situation” which was given at Northwestern Medicine on March 17, 2020 by Michael Ison, MD, professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Professor of Surgery in the Division of Transplant Surgery at Northwestern.
A new Boston Children’s Hospital and Northwestern Medicine study published in JAMA Pediatrics has revealed that more stringent negligence laws, which hold adults responsible for safe storage of firearms, may have potential to reduce firearm fatalities in children. Hooman Azad, a third-year medical student at Feinberg and first author of the study, explains.
Most people with peripheral artery disease, PAD, have great difficulty walking and few treatments to help. Preliminary results of a new Northwestern Medicine study suggest that cocoa may have a therapeutic effect on walking performance in people with PAD. Mary McDermott, MD, led this study and shares the results.
An important finding detailed in a new Northwestern Medicine study warns of the role certain kinds of meat may play in increasing cardiovascular disease risk and premature death. Norrina Allen, PhD, led this research and shares details about the study.
The outbreak of a novel Coronavirus in China is making headlines around the world. Here at Northwestern, microbiologist Karla Satchell, PhD, is leading an effort to investigate the structure biology of the components of the virus to ultimately understand how to stop it from replicating in human cells through a medication or vaccine.
