Marie Csete, MD, PhD, works at Emory University as The John E. Steinhaus Professor of Anesthesiology, the Director of Liver Transplant Anesthesiology, and Director of Emory/GaTech's Human Embryonic Stem Cell Core Facility.  We are honored that she has generously agreed to connect our students to real world of medical practice and scientific research by participating in the Mabry Global Learning Collaborative's Connect to Science Student/Practitioner Collaboration.  From time to time Dr. Csete will answer questions posted to the collaborative by our student authors.  She may also share with our learning community information about her work as a physician and a researcher.

Dr. Csete has graciously agreed to participate in our Connect to Science Collaboration!

A Brief Biography about Dr. Csete

  • Graduate of Princeton with A.B. in Music, 1975
  • Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, M.D., 1979
  • Residency and Fellowships: Harvard and Tufts
  • Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine
  • Specialty Interest:  liver transplantation
  • Director of Transplant Anesthesiology, Emory University Hospital
  • PhD, 2000, from California Institute of Technology.  Thesis:  Less is More:  Oxygen and Stem Cell Fate
  • Currently: Associate Professor and John E. Steinhaus Professor of Anesthesiology at Emory and
  • Director of the Emory/GaTech Human Embryonic Stem Cell Core Facility

Dr. Csete's Current Work

  • My clinical research is directed at optimizing perioperative management of liver transplant patients.
  • My lab research concerns the role of oxygen and oxidants in directing stem cell fate, and how stem cells age.  Members of the lab are also working on neuroprotection including stem cells for the treatment of pain, and the use of anesthetic gases to direct stem cell fate.
  • Students in the lab are from a wide variety of disciplines and include undergradates, graduate students, MD's and PhD's in training from programs in bioengineering, developmental biology, muscle biology, and neurobiology.

Jekyll Island 4H Center

We want to welcome and thank our instructors at the Jekyll Island 4H Center for making our 7th grade science expedition to Jekyll Island an amazing learning experience!  They kept our classes interesting and provided us with hands-on learning experiences that made our time on the island educational and memorable.

One of our instructors, Geo, was even a former Mabry student himself.  You can listen to a podcast interview with Geo at Podcast Central!

Jekyll Island, 2006

JekyllOur 7th grade Life Science students go on a science expedition to study the ecology of Jekyll Island, an area with rich bio-diversity on the Atlantic coast of Georgia.  This collaborative will allow our students and parents to communicate information before and during the trip.  Once the expedition is underway, a rich photo journal will be included to document the students' learning experiences.  Stay tuned to this link for the latest information related to the trip. 

Mr. Swanson is the contact for this project.

Antarctica McMurdo Station Collaboration

EmperorWelcome to the Antarctica Research Team Collaboration. This project collaboration is jointly sponsored by Mr. Chris Swanson, Mabry Instructional Lead Teacher, and Ms. Jean Pennycook, who will serve as our Polar Education Coordinator. This collaboration will be nothing short of an educational adventure! Ms. Pennycook is stationed at the McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica. The station is located on Ross Island at the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf, and is the largest US research base in Antarctica. Click here for a map showing the location of the station.

Dsc02551-1

The center of activity at the station is the scientists and their projects, but there are also many people who are there to run the station: everything from cooks to carpenters, firemen to crane operators. This town supports about 1,000 members. They all live in dorms, eat in a common dining room, have a hospital, and a post office.

The purpose of this collaboration is to share the science and the adventure of living and working in the unique environment of the station with our Mabry students. Right now there is a Russian ice breaker off the shore churning up the sea ice so the supply ship can come in. Only one ship comes in a year and brings all the supplies for the next 12 months.

If you have any questions about Antarctica, you may post them here for Ms. Pennycook, Mabry's own Polar Education Coordinator at the McMurdo Station, Antarctica! To go to the Antarctica McMurdo Station Collaboration and start learning, just click here!
