2 UT Southwestern researchers elected to National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine

p Center for Basic Research on Nerve Growth and Regeneration.

Dr. Paradas research integrates the fields of molecular genetics, embryonic development and signal transduction. His studies have provided critical insights into brain development and cancer biology, and have led to the identification of molecules that inhibit nerve regeneration after injury.

Our approach has always been to relate cancer and other diseases to problems associated with development and to thereby gain a unique insight into human disease, Dr. Parada said.

Dr. Parada earned his doctorate in biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was head of the Molecular Embryology Section in the Mammalian Genetics Laboratory of the National Cancer Institute before joining UT Southwestern in 1994. He has received numerous honors, including membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and being named an American Cancer Society Research Professor.

Dr. Sdhof holds the Gill Distinguished Chair in Neuroscience and the Loyd B. Sands Distinguished Chair in Neuroscience. He also directs the C. Vincent Protho Center for Research in Basic Neuroscience and the Gill Center for Research on Brain Cell Communication.

Dr. Sdhof studies nerve-cell interaction and neurotransmitter release, a process that initiates communication between one neuron and another in the brain. His research has led to a better understanding of brain function under normal and pathologic conditions, such as Alzheimers disease. In 2001 Dr. Sdhof and his collaborators made a breakthrough discovery about the role of a protein involved in the onset of Alzheimers, a finding that may have a profound impact on how doctors treat the disease.

A member of the National Academy of Sciences, Dr. Sdhof received his medical degree from the Georgia Augusta University of Gttingen, Germany, in 1982. He did postdoctoral work at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Gt
