Northwestern Medicine scientists have received a $7.5 million grant to study how genetic information from African American patients can predict their responses to medications.
When it comes to gene regulation, there are more similarities between fruit flies and humans than previously thought, according to new Northwestern Medicine research.
Identifying mutations in the estrogen receptor (ER) gene can help clinicians choose effective therapies for patients with ER-positive metastatic breast cancer, according to recent research.
New research describes a never-before-observed identity switch in differentiated cells derived from so-called induced pluripotent stem cells.
Northwestern Medicine scientists and collaborators discovered that mutations in the TEK gene lead to primary congenital glaucoma, validating previous findings in mice and suggesting a target for future therapies.
Northwestern Medicine scientists explore research that has shown how the balanced activities of two protein families regulate gene expression during embryonic development and how mutations that tip this balance lead to cancer.
Mutations in a gene called TMEM230 were definitively linked to confirmed cases of the common movement disorder in a recent Northwestern Medicine study.
A study co-authored by Northwestern Medicine scientists suggests that genetic factors associated with elevated body mass index and higher blood sugar levels in mothers cause babies to be born heavier.
Scientists demonstrated a new, focused approach to genomic analysis in a study that dissected inflammatory gene expression in immune cells.
New Northwestern Medicine research has shown that reprogrammed stem cells can be used to identify patients with cancer who are likely to experience a dangerous side effect of a common chemotherapy drug.
