Obese Girls in Early Puberty at Risk for High Androgen Levels, U.Va. Study Finds

Obese girls in the early stages of puberty are at risk for having high levels of androgens, or male hormones, a condition that may lead to health problems later, according to a team of researchers from the University of Virginia Health System. The obese girls with higher testosterone may be at risk for adult polycystic ovary syndrome, according to co-author Dr. John C. Marshall, professor of internal medicine and director for U.Va.’s Center for Research in Reproduction, one of 14 such centers in the country. The researchers are currently investigating how obesity and high levels of male hormones might contribute to the development of adolescent and adult PCOS. Full story.

Joe Campbell: Making Progress at the Speed of Light

This year’s appointment of National Academy of Engineering member Joe C. Campbell (above) as the Lucien Carr III Professor of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Virginia marked the beginning of a new era for scientific research at U.Va. Campbell changed the face of the worldwide telecommunications network with his invention of a critical component called a high-speed avalanche photodiode, designed to change photonic signals into electronic signals extremely quickly, reliably and with very little noise or distortion. In coming years, researchers of Campbell’s caliber will lead the University to be a preeminent research institution in science and enginering. Full story.
