Northwestern Medicine scientists discovered that genetic mutations in the KCNB1 potassium channel gene can result in severe early onset epilepsy.
Nehal Gosalia, ’14 PhD, examined the role of architectural proteins in regulation of expression of the cystic fibrosis gene.
The common cold decreases gene expression in nasal cavity cells, making asthma worse.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have expanded the understanding of how myelodysplastic syndromes develop.
A mathematical model can predict whether a tumor has a gene mutation associated with a favorable prognosis for glioblastoma patients.
Elizabeth McNally, MD, PhD, has been named the Elizabeth J. Ward Chair and director of the Center for Genetic Medicine.
David Kamp, MD, completed his residency and fellowship at Northwestern, where he now studies a range of lung disorders as well as cellular apoptosis, a process of programmed cell death.
Recently published research in Human Molecular Genetics shows that removing too much of the enzyme HDAC3 has a toxic effect on the nervous system. The expression of this enzyme is inhibited by drugs being studied as potential treatment options for cancer and neurodegeneration
Meredith Ayres, a second-year student in the Graduate Program in Genetic Counseling, is interested in the psychosocial aspects of children with life-shortening conditions. She sifts through data to determine how parents with children who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy can have better conversations about managing this condition.
