Biotech discoveries over the past week included a key molecule in nerve cells in Parkinson’s and insights into the brain’s role in obesity.
Scientists believe they've discovered a novel gene that can be inhibited with antisense technology to treat cancer.
Worm models show that a previously dismissed process in genetic coding could explain why quitting smoking is so hard.
University of Michigan scientists made some surprising discoveries when they did a detailed genetic analysis of metastatic tumors from 500 patients.
UCSD scientists are repurposing the anti-inflammatory drug amlexanox to treat Type 2 diabetes.
University of Michigan researchers have identified a large molecule that selectively attacks prostate tumors without harming healthy cells.
University of Michigan scientists have adapted a microscopy technique to accelerate and automate the analysis of brain tissue during tumor removal surgery.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a new way to customize therapeutic vaccines for the treatment of colon cancer and melanoma. And they've spun off a new biotech company to further develop the new technology.
When scientists at the University of Michigan attempted to transplant their stem cell-derived miniature lungs into mice, they failed, because the minilungs lacked the maturity and structure needed to be able to facilitate breathing. So the biologists teamed up with biomedical engineers to develop a solution to the problem.
