Dr. Loboa: Enhanced cellular infiltration of human adipose-derived stem cells in allograft menisci using a needle-punch method (Open Access Article)

This week's open access article features Dr. Elizabeth Loboa, Dean of the College of Engineering, and professor of bioengineering. Her research and techincal focuses are tissue engineering & biomaterials, regenerative medicine and wound healing, and stem cells. Take a look at Dr. Loboa's faculty profile to learn more about her role as the dean, as well as her research. 

Dr. Loboa, with her research team, published in the Journal of Orthopedic Surgery and Research (JOSR) back in October. Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that encompasses all aspects of clinical and basic research studies related to musculoskeletal issues. JOSR encourages the publication of multidisciplinary research with collaboration amongst clinicians and scientists from different disciplines, which will be the trend in the coming decades. This is why her article is also featured. Dr. Loboa's article is an interdiscplinary collaboration with medicine and engineering. 

Her research in Enhanced cellular infiltration of human adipose-derived stem cells in allograft menisci using a needle-punch method, looked to provide a new method for enhanced cellular infiltration in meniscal allografts. The memiscus is crucial in knee joint function in terms of join stability, and allowing shock absorption, and stress distribution. Their new approach was found to better help better remodel post-surgery, and improve long-term efficacy of meniscal transplantation.

Sharing Days Poster Help

Do you have a project that has shown significant process in the past year? If so, why not share your poster during the 5th Annual Sharing Days May 2-4, 2017. 

The library has prepared a wonderful guide for you to refer to. Powerpoint for Posters provides resources for design tips, templates, MU Logos and Colors, infographics, and much more. Of course, there are other ways to create posters, by powerpoint is commonly used. Of course, apart from the layout of your poster, it is important to consider the information that goes on your poster. Does your poster provide enough information? Does it have too much? Be sure to pay special attention to the Evaluating Your Poster tab, which provides a poster evaluation checklist, along with evaluation surverys and rubrics to help you determine if your poster has a focus.  You do want your poster to be visually appealing, but you also want your poster to be informative.


When you have the finished product, the Center for Health Care Quality (CHCQ) will print your poster for free on non-laminated paper. Be sure to check that option when you submit the poster in the QI Tracker. Remember, the deadline to submit your poster is April 16th, either through the QI Tracker or through SharePoint
 

If you would like some one-on-one assistance, Taira Meadowcroft, one of our librarians, is more than happy to schedule a consultation or answer any questions you may have. To contact Taira, you can email her at meadowcroftt@health.missouri.edu or call at 573-884-3575.

The library information desk is also open from 8-5 everyday, as well as our chat service. We are here to help!


*On Friday March 17th at 1pm, MU Libraries will be hosting a workshop entitled Creating a Research Poster, both in person or online. This workshop will provide tools you will need in order to effectively communicate your work with your poster. 

To view last year’s posters, please visit https://mymuhealth.org/2016sharingdays.

Cycle of Success: Marybeth Bohn, Orthopedic Surgery

Cycle of Success is the idea that libraries, faculty, and students are linked; for one to truly succeed, we must all succeed. The path to success is formed by the connections between University of Missouri Libraries and faculty members, between faculty members and students, and between students and the libraries that serve them. More than just success, this is also a connection of mutual respect, support, and commitment to forward-thinking research.

 

Marybeth Bohn

 

Maryboth Bohn is the executive assistant to Dr. James P. Stannard, MD. in the Missouri Orthopedic Institute.  Marybeth works in the academic office and assists with administrative paperwork. With a tight deadline approaching, and needing the information by the end of the business day, Marybeth contacted the health sciences library to ask for help in gathering metrics for promotion and tenure. Katy Emerson, Library Specialist Sr. in Interlibrary Loan, gave Marybeth some information on the possible metrics she could use for the Promotion and Tenure packet, while Taira Meadowcroft, Information Services Librarian, and Rachel Alexander, Graduate Library Assistant, gathered the metrics. It was definitely a great collaborative effort! 
 

Rachel Alexander

 

"I work in a fast-paced office assisting Dr. Stannard with his administrative work. Much of that includes academic activities such as reviewing P&T packets, writing letters, and gathering articles for research. If it weren't for the help of the librarians in the Health Science Library, I would be in dire straits! They come to my rescue often! They are quick, upbeat, and always helpful. Recently, I needed publication metrics for a P&T review. Two of the librarians stopped what they were doing to help me and speed things along. They also took the time to explain what everything meant. I also appreciate their helpfulness in pulling articles for me when I am not able to access the articles myself. I have used the online request system and their online chat system quite easily and have always received excellent assistance. Don't hesitate to ask a friendly librarian!"

Message from the Director: Deborah Ward


Change is in the air, and at the Health Sciences Libraries, we are changing too. At the same time, we are staying true to our mission of providing the lasting, community-wide benefits of access to vital information and services that make a difference to our users. We continue to seek new ways to bring value to the teaching and learning experience, patient care excellence, and research efforts.

While we regret that the budget realities we all face have caused us to cancel journal titles this year, and more will follow next year, we hope we can continue to propel your success through access channels rather than the ownership model that is becoming more difficult for all libraries to sustain. 


Be sure to follow our library to learn more about the work we are engaged in, and we look forward to furthering our work with all of you.

Gemille Purnell headed to Washington D.C.

Gemille Purnell, a graduate library assistant with the Health Sciences Library, recently won a scholarship to attend the Consumer Food Safety Education Conference, January 25th-27th in Washington D.C. 

Gemille was among twelve awardees chosen by the committee of the non-profit Partnership for Food Safety Education. In order to be eligible for this opportunity, Gemille had to complete an application, write an essay on how attending the conference would have a positive impact on her professional future, and have a faculty member submit a letter of recommendation. 

When asked why she decided to apply for this scholarship, Gemille said "food safety is a public health concern that often gets overlooked, so I felt this conference would be a great opportunity for me to enhance my professional readiness." 

Congratulations Gemille!
