Detailed Biography:

Dr. Cohen graduated with highest honors in 1986 from the Technion Medical School in Israel, and trained in Pediatrics and Endocrinology at Stanford University until 1992. He was until 1998 an Associate Professor and Pediatric Endocrinology Program Director at the University of Pennsylvania & Children?s Hospital of Philadelphia. He is currently a Professor and Chief of Pediatric Endocrinology at UCLA and the associate director of the UCSD/UCLA Diabetes/Endocrinology Research Center. He was inducted into both the Society of Pediatric Research and the American Pediatric Society (APS). He is the recipient of the American Diabetes Association, Pediatric Endocrine Society, Eli-Lilly & Ross awards, and most recently, the APS Best Science Award. Dr. Cohen published over 250 papers focusing on cancer, aging, growth disorders, diabetes, GH/IGF biology and the emerging science of mitochondrial-derived peptides. He received grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), FDA, and various foundations including the Prostate cancer Foundation. He recently received a EUREKA-Award and the NIH-Director-Transformative RO1-Grant. He serves on several NIH study sections and his editorial services include being an associate editor of Pediatric Research and a member of the editorial boards of Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, Endocrinology, and the Journal of GH and IGF Research as well as being an executive officer of the GH Research society, the IGF society and the Endocrine Society Steering Committee.

MeSH Terms:

What is MeSH?

Medical Subject Headings

We have integrated Faculty Profiles with the U.S. National Library of Medicine's MeSH terms. For every publication added to a profile, we pull its MeSH terms and display it here. This enhancement allows you to search for research themes of our faculty members.

Click on any of the terms below to see additional researchers with similar keywords.

MeSH is:

  • an acronym for Medical Subject Headings.
  • the U.S. National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary (thesaurus).
  • a vocabulary that gives uniformity and consistency to the indexing and cataloging of biomedical literature.
  • a distinctive feature of MEDLINE.
  • arranged in a hierarchical manner called the MeSH Tree Structures.
  • updated annually.

MeSH Vocabulary includes four types of terms:

  • Headings
  • Subheadings
  • Supplementary Concept Records
  • Publication Characteristics (or Types)

Over 26,000 MeSH headings (also called "main headings" or "descriptors" represents concepts found in the biomedical literature

Subheadings - (also called qualifiers) are attached to MeSH headings to describe a specific aspect of a concept.

Supplementary Concept Records are over 200,000 terms in a separate thesaurus from the Medical Subject Headings. These are primarily substance terms, but also include some protocols and rare desease terms. These terms are updated weekly.

Publication Characteristics or (Publication Types) describe the type of publication being indexed; i.e., what the item is, not what the article is about.
