The Departments of Anesthesiology and Neurology Host: “Perivascular Spaces in the Brain & Contributions to Pathology of Cerebral Small Vessel Disease” on March 24
The purpose of this Yale mini-symposium is to highlight the huge unmet clinical need to understand the pathophysiology of small vessel disease to inform future therapeutic efforts to reduce the burden of this illness due to cognitive impairment and dementia. In particular the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie diffuse white matter disease and small vessel disease in the brain, the relationships between them, and how they may contribute to cognitive impairment and dementia.

Bioengineered blood vessel is safe for dialysis patients, study finds
A Yale scientist collaborated with researchers at Duke University and surgeons in Poland and the United States to create bioengineered blood vessels for kidney-disease patients on dialysis. The man-made vessels appeared to be both safe and more durable than commonly used synthetic versions, said the investigators.
Geha lead co-author in study on treatment of chronic pain
Paul Geha, assistant professor of psychiatry at Yale, participated in a study by Yale researchers who have successfully tailored a personalized treatment approach for chronic pain in a severe pain syndrome known as inherited erythromelalgia.
Dr. Laura Niklason elected to National Academy of Medicine
Dr. Laura Niklason, Professor Anesthesiology and Biomedical Engineering at Yale, was elected in October 2015 to the prestigious National Academy of Medicine (formerly termed the Institute of Medicine). Dr. Niklason is the Vice-Chair for Research in the Department of Anesthesiology. Her. research focuses primarily on regenerative strategies for cardiovascular and lung tissues, and the impact of biomechanical and biochemical signals of tissue differentiation and development. She was inducted into the National Academy of Inventors in 2014.
