Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and University of Pittsburgh to Share $2.8 Million NIH Grant for Tuberculosis Study

A third of the world’s people are infected with tuberculosis, and someone new is infected every second. TB is notoriously hard to treat, requiring a course of multiple antibiotics over six to nine months.

Study by Einstein Researchers Could Lead to a Novel Strategy for Controlling Appetite and Treating Obesity

BRONX, NY — In their latest finding on the brain’s role in controlling appetite and weight, researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have shown that reducing levels of fatty acids in the hypothalamus causes rats to overeat and become obese. Their results suggest that restoring fatty-acid levels in the brain may be a promising way to treat obesity. The study, published in the January 15th on-line edition of Nature Neuroscience, was led by Dr. Luciano Rossetti, director of the Diabetes Research Center at Einstein. (The paper will appear in print in the February issue.)
