Journal of Extracorporeal Technology recently published, “Heparin Dose and Postoperative Bleeding in Patients Undergoing Cardiopulmonary Bypass,” coauthored by Mark W. Rosin, MPS, and  David Holt, MA, CCT, program director in our clinical perfusion education program. They presented at the 33rd Annual Cardiothoracic Research and Education Foundation Symposium in San Diego, CA last year.

Katherine Jones, PT, PhD, will be honored this spring with the UNMC New Investigator Award. New Investigator Awards go to outstanding UNMC scientists who in the past two years have secured their first funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense or other national sources. New Investigators also had to demonstrate scholarly activity such as publishing their research and/or presenting their findings at national conventions.
