August 2018: TPLH Collaborator Dr. Anderson Kuo Wins Early Investigator Award from Journal of Physiology

The prestigious Journal of Physiology, a leading international journal on all aspects of physiology including developmental programming, selected Anderson Kuo, MD, PhD as Runner-up for the 2017 Early Investigator Prize for his work with TPLH baboons. His paper “Cardiac remodelling in a baboon model of intrauterine growth restriction mimics accelerated ageing” was featured as an Editor’s Choice article and made the cover of the February 2017 issue of the journal. Dr. Kuo’s imaging work with TPLH baboons has shown that developmental programming has profound effects on organ structure and function that persist into adulthood and even accelerate the aging process. Dr. Kuo was a Radiology Resident at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio until summer 2018. After completing his PhD in Radiology in May 2018, Dr. Kuo has now moved to Boston to begin two fellowship programs: Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School and Cardiovascular Imaging Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.
