This month the PNA Spotlight focuses on Manish Aghi, M.D., Ph.D., M.A.S., a neurosurgeon at the University of California San Francisco. Dr. Aghi earned a B.S. and M.S. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University, and both an M.D. and an Ph.D. from Harvard University, specializing in neuroscience. He completed a neurosurgical surgery residency and a postdoc at Massachusetts General Hospital. He is currently a professor of neurological surgery at UCSF and his clinical practice specializes in endoscopic skull base surgery.
This month the PNA Medical Corner showcases a study co-authored by a member of the PNA, Dr. Russell Lonser, a neurosurgeon with Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. The study finds that corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) can improve F-FDG-PET detection of pituitary tumors in people with Cushing’s disease.
Please join the Pituitary Network Association and The Ohio State University for a Pituitary Patient Symposium featuring a series of pituitary and hormonal patient education sessions presented by some of the top physicians of pituitary and hormonal medicine. The symposium faculty will share the most up-to-date information and be available to answer your most pressing questions.
Knowledge is power and we believe keeping abreast of news on the research front is imperative. Each month in Highlights we feature a few of the top news stories, which you can read below. In addition, we update our website on a regular basis with the latest breaking news related to pituitary and hormonal disorders by gathering stories we think you'll be interested in from MD Linx, Medscape, MedPage Today, PubMed, Touch Endocrinology, News-Medical.net and WebMD.
