The imprinted gene cluster at the telomeric end of mouse chromosome 7 contains a differentially methylated CpG island, KvDMR, that is required for the imprinting of multiple genes, including the genes encoding the maternally expressed placental-specific transcription factor ASCL2, the cyclin-dependent kinase CDKN1C, and the potassium channel KCNQ1. The(More)
In 2006, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) initiated the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) program to establish premier academic sites designed to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of translational research at the local, regional, and national levels. In February 2010, the NIH sponsored a national CTSA forum on "Promoting(More)
The imprinted gene cluster on mouse distal chromosome 7 contains a differentially methylated CpG island that maps within the Kcnq1 gene that has been shown to be required for the imprinting of multiple genes. To evaluate models for how this imprinting control region (ICR) regulates imprinting, we have characterized it structurally and functionally. We show(More)
One of the objectives of the Consortium of Institutions with Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) is to enhance technology transfer among the CTSAs and with public and private sector partners. Clinical and Translational Sciences Award Intellectual Property (CTSA-IP; http://www.CTSAIP.org) is a web-based, open access IP search tool that(More)
Focus groups were held to better understand conceptions of disease prevention among low-income African American women at risk for diabetes. Mental calm was associated with health more than nutrition, exercise, or social connection. This finding suggests that prioritizing stress reduction will help with successful implementation of community holistic(More)
The multimodality approach to the treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer has evolved to include neoadjuvant radiotherapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy, total mesorectal excision and adjuvant fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy. Though this broad strategy has yielded improvements in local control compared with historical data, overall survival(More)
Regulatory science, a complex field which draws on science, law, and policy, is a growing discipline in medical-related applications. Competencies help define both a discipline and the criteria to measure high-quality learning experiences. This paper identifies competencies for regulatory science, how they were developed, and broader recommendations to(More)
