The Graduate Program in Genetic Counseling expanded from 14 to 20 students per class, preparing graduates for careers in various genetic counseling fields, including clinical, industry, research and public policy.
A study has shown that a recently-discovered type of RNA is specific to certain cell types, which may make it possible to use those RNA sequences as a marker in stem cell research.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have demonstrated a new method that helps to pinpoint which genetic variants might be most important in the development of schizophrenia and related disorders.
A Northwestern Medicine study analyzing the genomes of more than 27,000 individuals has uncovered that ethnic disparities in lupus diagnoses have a genetic basis.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have developed technology that uses genomics and data analytics to efficiently screen for molecules produced by molds to find new drug prospects.
Northwestern Medicine scientists studied a poxvirus and demonstrated that ribosomes can selectively control the process of protein synthesis known as translation.
A new study explains how mutations in a sodium channel can lead to a disorder causing insensitivity to pain.
A new Northwestern Medicine study, published in Genes and Development, has identified two DNA elements crucial to the activation of a set of genes that drive the early development of embryos.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have demonstrated an important role for the methylation of the amino terminus of a specific protein in maintaining centromere function and chromosome segregation, both important in cell division.
OncoSET, the flagship clinical and research program of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, combines oncology with genomic sequencing to provide cutting-edge cancer care personalized for each patient.
