Honors & Awards

  • An image taken by members of Dr. Boudina's Laboratory during a study on oxidative stress was featured on the cover of Diabetes: A Journal of the American Diabetes Association; Volume 65 Issue 9. The corresponding article, Adipocyte-Specific Deletion of Manganese Superoxide Dismutase Protects From Diet-Induced Obesity Through Increased Mitochondrial Uncoupling and Biogenesis, is also featured in the issue. 09/2016
  • Dr. Boudina's Laboratory was awarded the Grant-in-Aid from the American Heart Association thanks to Marcio Buffolo’s work investigating the role of a new subpopulation of epididymal (visceral) progenitor cells (EPCs) in metabolic diseases. Previous studies have described that EPC do not differentiate in vitro. This data has been associated with the decrease of cellular renewal that might be related to the detrimental visceral cell hypertrophy we see in obesity. 08/2016
