New results from Tulane University suggest that long-term therapy with metformin reduced the incidence of neurodegenerative diseases among elderly veterans with diabetes, although this association was not observed with a less than 2-year exposure to the drug. The main authors on the page were Qian Shi, doctoral student in the GHMP Department, Dr. Lizheng Shi, Regents Professor in the GHMP Dept., and Dr. Vivian Fonseca with the Tulane University School of Medicine.

While many students are basking in the off time afforded by summer break, MD/MPH student Brady Page, is traveling to far-flung locales for a year-long trip to research and help treat patients in developing nations. The native of Mountain View, California received a Fulbright-Fogarty research grant that will take him to the Brazillian state of Bahia to study leishmaniasis — a disease caused by a parasite transmitted by sandfly bites.

Just a beautiful day outside our building! A streetcar passes in front of the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine as it rolls down Canal Street on Monday morning (Feb. 29). Traveling north, the Canal line takes riders on a scenic route from the Mississippi River to the cemeteries at City Park Avenue, as well as to Esplanade Avenue near the New Orleans Museum of Art.
