Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) is a major research institution, providing an exceptional environment for students interested in basic science, clinical investigation, or public health and health services oriented research. BUSM has 660 medical students, and a similar number of graduate students in the medical school actively engaged in the study of medicine and the biomedical sciences. Located in the historic South End of Boston, BUSM shares a campus with Boston Medical Center, the School of Public Health, the Goldman School of Dental Medicine, and the Dr. Solomon Carter Fuller Mental Health Center.

  • A transitional opioid program to engage hospitalized drug users 

    Shanahan, C. W.; Beers, D.; Alford, D. P.; Brigandi, E.; Samet, J. H. (J Gen Intern Med., 2010-08)
    BACKGROUND: Many opioid-dependent patients do not receive care for addiction issues when hospitalized for other medical problems. Based on 3 years of clinical practice, we report the Transitional Opioid Program (TOP) ...
  • Inhibitory Effects of Robo2 on Nephrin: A Crosstalk between Positive and Negative Signals Regulating Podocyte Structure 

    Fan, Xueping; Li, Qinggang; Pisarek-Horowitz, Anna; Rasouly, Hila Milo; Wang, Xiangling; Bonegio, Ramon G.; Wang, Hang; McLaughlin, Margaret; Mangos, Steve; Kalluri, Raghu; Holzman, Lawrence B.; Drummond, Iain A.; Brown, Dennis; Salant, David J.; Lu, Weining (Elsevier, 2012-07-26)
    Robo2 is the cell surface receptor for the repulsive guidance cue Slit and is involved in axon guidance and neuronal migration. Nephrin is a podocyte slit- diaphragm protein that functions in the kidney glomerular filtration ...
  • Noninvasive Assessment of Antenatal Hydronephrosis in Mice Reveals a Critical Role for Robo2 in Maintaining Anti-Reflux Mechanism 

    Wang, Hang; Li, Qinggang; Liu, Juan; Mendelsohn, Cathy; Salant, David J.; Lu, Weining (PLoS ONE, 2011-09-20)
    Antenatal hydronephrosis and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) are common renal tract birth defects. We recently showed that disruption of the Robo2 gene is associated with VUR in humans and antenatal hydronephrosis in knockout ...
  • Crystal Structure of the P Pilus Rod Subunit PapA 

    Verger, Denis; Bullitt, Esther; Hultgren, Scott J; Waksman, Gabriel (Public Library of SciencePathogens, 2007-5-18)
    P pili are important adhesive fibres involved in kidney infection by uropathogenic Escherichia coli strains. P pili are assembled by the conserved chaperone-usher pathway, which involves the PapD chaperone and the PapC ...
  • How good is the orthopaedic literature? 

    Chaudhry, Harman; Mundi, Raman; Singh, Ishu; Einhorn, Thomas A.; Bhandari, Mohit (Medknow Publications, 2008-04)
    Randomized trials constitute approximately 3% of the orthopaedic literature Concerns regarding quality of the orthopaedic literature stem from a widespread notion that the overall quality of the surgical literature is in ...
  • Self-Reported Safety Belt Use among Emergency Department Patients in Boston, Massachusetts 

    Fernandez, William G.; Mehta, Supriya D.; Coles, Tara; Feldman, James A.; Mitchell, Patricia; Olshaker, Jonathan (BioMed Central, 2006-4-27)
    BACKGROUND. Safety belt use is 80% nationally, yet only 63% in Massachusetts. Safety belt use among potentially at-risk groups in Boston is unknown. We sought to assess the prevalence and correlates of belt non-use among ...
  • Cox-2: Where Are We in 2003? - The Role of Cyclooxygenase-2 in Bone Repair 

    Einhorn, Thomas A. (BioMed Central, 2002-10-21)
    Prostaglandins are important mediators of bone repair, and cyclooxygenases are required for prostaglandin production. Data from animal studies suggest that both non-specific and specific inhibitors of cyclooxygenases impair ...
  • Giant Organ Confined Prostatic Adenocarcinoma: A Case Report 

    Brahmbhatt, Jamin V.; Liou, Louis S. (BioMed Central, 2008-1-29)
    INTRODUCTION Giant prostatic adenocarcinoma represents a rare and challenging treatment dilemma. CASE PRESENTATION We describe a case of an otherwise healthy 71-year-old African male who presented with a PSA of 5800 ...
  • Inhibition of Melanoma Angiogenesis by Telomere Homolog Oligonucleotides 

    Coleman, Christina; Levine, Danielle; Kishore, Raj; Qin, Gangjian; Thorne, Tina; Lambers, Erin; Sasi, Sharath P.; Yaar, Mina; Gilchrest, Barbara A.; Goukassian, David A. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2010-6-28)
    Telomere homolog oligonucleotides (T-oligos) activate an innate telomere-based program that leads to multiple anticancer effects. T-oligos act at telomeres to initiate signaling through the Werner protein and ATM kinase. ...
