Dr. Svetlana Slavic who is currently researching the effect of FGF23, a hormone secreted from the bone, on cardiac hypertrophy was awarded the Young Investigator Award for the presentation of her findings.

 

Kristopher Ford runs Halfmarathon

My first ever Half Marathon (21 km or 13.1 m) for British Heart Foundation because every beat matters!

https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Kristopher-Ford 5

As a cardiovascular researcher, I know all too well how big a problem heart disease is and how devastating it can be to all those affected.  I would like to give a little of my time to give something back to the charities and organisations which are doing life-saving work and that have allowed me to be the scientists I am today. I really appreciate any donation that you can give and together we will fight heart disease. Don't stop the beat! Thank You.

Sathish Kumar Murali received Young Investigator Award 2014 from the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research

Sathish Kumar Murali is a Ph.D student in Department for Physiology, Pathophysiology, and Molecular Endocrinology. His research is focused on the vitamin-D independent role of FGF23 and Klotho. He concentrated to unveil the involvement of FGF23 and Klotho in bone mineralization. Interesting outcome from his research led to presentation at the conference of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) 2014 in Houston where he received the “Young investigator award” for his outstanding work.

Olena Andrukhova received Friedrich Heuck Osteology Prize 2014

Olena Andrukhova is Assistant Professor in Department for Physiology and Pathophysiology. Based on her outstanding scientific performance in bone biology research received Olena Andrukhova Friedrich Heuck Osteology Prize for 2014.

Since 2010 Olena Andrukhova worked in the group of Reinhold Erben at the Institute for Physiology, Pathophysiology and Biophysics at Vetmeduni Vienna. Olena comes originally from Ukraine. Her scientific interest is focused on the physiological role of vitamin D as well as pathological reasons of hypertonia and vascular calcification.

In recently published Paper in EMBO Journal Olena clarifies the molecular possible explanation for vascular calcification in chronic kidney disease.

Olena Andrukhova received Friedrich Heuck Osteology Prize in Munich

In March received Olena Andrukhova Friedrich Heuck Osteology Prize on Osteology congress 2014 in Munich. With this prize yearly one person with distinct scientific record in osteology research is distinguished. The scientist should have tree high impact scientific papers in international journals.

Olena Andrukhova received recently FWF project and Assistant Professor Position

Since 1-st of April this year coordinate Olena Andrukhova as a young Assistant Professor her FWF project. In this project together with her co-workers Olena Andrukhova will investigate the role of hormone FGF23 in acute myocardial infarction model. In 2011 Olena Andrukhova received also Young Investigator Award from American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR).
