December 9, 2016

Waki Hosoda, M.D., Ph.D.
Waki Hosoda, M.D., Ph.D. has been selected as the inaugural Sol Goldman Fellow in Pancreatic Cancer Research in the Department of Pathology at Johns Hopkins Medicine. His special interest lies in pathology and genetics of pancreatic tumors. He is currently working in the laboratory of Laura Wood, M.D., Ph.D., focused on characterizing the genetic alterations in high-grade precursors of pancreatic cancer. His study is a real tour de force, and the early results are simply ground-breaking.

Čiháková Lab in European Journal of Immunology

European Journal of Immunology
Below is the description of the picture from the journal itself: "Back cover features an H&E stained biopsy section from a patient with eosinophilic myocarditis. Countless heart-infiltrating eosinophils with bright pink granules and bi-lobed nuclei are visible between large, striated cardiomyocytes. In addition, T cells and macrophages are infiltrating the heart. This image relates to the article by Diny et al. (pp. 2749-2760), in which the authors analyze the pathway required for eosinophil trafficking to the heart by examining heart biopsies from myocarditis patients and a murine myocarditis model. IL-4 and IL-13 induce production of eotaxins CCL11 and CCL24 by cardiac fibroblasts and macrophages. In response to eotaxins, eosinophils migrate to the heart via the receptor CCR3."
