AJP - Cell Physiology Podcasts from the American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology

May 8, 2017  

In this special podcast the Editor-in-Chief of AJP-Cell, Prof. Josephine C. Adams (University of Bristol, UK), has a discussion with the AJP-Cell Paper of the Year 2016 Award winner, Dr. Nathan Zaidman (now at John Hopkins, USA), and his mentor, Prof. Scott O'Grady (University of Minnesota, USA). The research underlying the winning paper was carried out as part of Nathan's Ph.D. research in Prof. O'Grady's laboratory.

This podcast explores the major findings of the 2016 AJP-Cell Physiology Paper of the Year “Differentiation of human bronchial epithelialcells: role of hydrocortisone in development of ion transport pathways involvedin mucociliary clearance” (DOI: 10.1152/ajpcell.00073.2016). The authors explain how they investigated the role of hydrocortisone (HC) in differentiation and development of the ion transport phenotype of normal human bronchial epithelial cells under air-liquid interface conditions.

The discussion also touches on possible future research directions. Dr. Zaidman shares valuable advice for other students about the key factor to consider when it comes to choosing a postdoctoral research project.

Editor-in-Chief of AJP-Cell, Professor Josephine C. Adams (University of Bristol, UK) in conversation with the winner of the AJP-Cell Paper of the Year 2015 Award, Dr. Anna Vainshtein (now at Baylor College of Medicine, USA), and her PhD supervisor Dr. David A. Hood (York University, Canada).

This podcast explores the major findings of the 2015 AJP-Cell Physiology Paper of the Year "Role of PGC-1α during acute exercise-induced autophagy and mitophagy in skeletal muscle". The authors explain how they came to study the effects of exercise on stimulating the breakdown of dysfunctional mitochondria in skeletal muscle. The authors and Editor-in-Chief  discuss possible future research and Dr. Vainshtein shares her thoughts for other junior investigators on choosing a postdoctoral research project after completing a PhD.

Jennifer T. Durham, Howard K. Surks, Brian M. Dulmovits, Ira M. Herman. Pericyte Contractility Controls Endothelial Cell Cycle Progression and Sprouting: Insights into Angiogenic Switch Mechanics.  American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology. Published 1 November 2014 Vol. 307 no. 9, C878-C892 DOI: 10.1152/ajpcell.00185.2014.

This podcast is based on a discussion between EIC Professor Josephine C. Adams (University of Bristol, UK) and Dr. Jennifer T. Durham, the winner of the AJP-Cell 2014 Paper of the Year award, and her mentor Professor Ira M. Herman (both from Tufts University, Boston, Massachusetts).

What is the role of pericytes in microvascular function in development or disease? This podcast explores the major findings of the 2014 AJP-Cell Physiology Paper of the Year "Pericyte contractility controls endothelial cell cycle progression and sprouting: insights into angiogenic switch mechanics."  The authors explain how this research represents a paradigm shift in understanding mechanisms by which pericytes modulate endothelial cell functions. The authors and Editor-in-Chief also discuss possible future clinical prospects and Dr. Durham shares her top tips for other post-doctorate researchers on carrying out a complex project.
