The Miller School of Medicine and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) held a joint meeting last Friday to discuss the findings of an independent task force report, “The Emerging Global Health Crisis: Noncommunicable Diseases in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.” Task force leader Thomas J.

A team of Miller School of Medicine researchers, working with investigators from three other institutions, has identified a relationship between a family of lipid modifications of a growth factor, and how that growth factor may regulate cellular fate and growth. This discovery may begin to show how the function of these proteins is modified by metabolic activity in both developmental and disease settings.
