Scientists reduced blood clotting in mice with a blood disease called myeloproliferative neoplasm by inhibiting expression of a gene.
A new $10 million gift from University trustees and supporters Louis A. Simpson ’58 and Kimberly K. Querrey will create a center to study the effects of environment on the activation and expression of genes.
The first genetic mutation that appears to protect against multiple aspects of biological aging in humans has been discovered in an Amish family in Indiana, according to a new Northwestern Medicine study.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered that a protein called BRWD2/PHIP binds to H3K4 methylation, a key molecular event that influences gene expression.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered a genetic basis for glaucoma symptoms and the impact of other genes in early retinal development.
Northwestern Medicine investigators applied discovery-based proteomics to identify synaptic protein interactions that possibly contribute to autism spectrum disorders.
Scientists, students and trainees from dozens of departments gathered recently for the inaugural Stem Cells and Regenerative Biology Research Retreat.
A team of scientists has identified the genetic drivers of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, the most common type of blood cancer, and determined the genes’ clinical significance.
Small RNA molecules can trigger a mechanism hidden in every cell, forcing it to commit suicide, according to a new Northwestern Medicine study, the first to identify molecules that trigger such a fail-safe mechanism.
A newly discovered gene mutation may increase a patient’s risk of genetic heart disease, presenting a target for therapy or genetic screening down the road.
