Northwestern Medicine scientists have identified a novel mechanism for how mutations in desmoplakin — a protein that helps cells stick together — can lead to cardiac arrhythmias and other diseases.
Two Northwestern faculty, including the chair of Pathology, will serve as president and vice president of the American Association of Neuropathologists.
Triclosan, a common antimicrobial used in toothpastes and other products, may raise the risk of gut inflammation and colorectal cancer, according to a preliminary animal study.
New chair Daniel Brat, MD, PhD, is spearheading transformations in pathology, a field that’s rapidly evolving in parallel with advances in precision medicine and a trend toward sub-specialization.
Scientists have developed software that can forecast the survival of patients diagnosed with glioma that is more accurate than physicians’ predictions.
Scientists reduced blood clotting in mice with a blood disease called myeloproliferative neoplasm by inhibiting expression of a gene.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have demonstrated the potential of targeting inflammatory pathways in order to limit tissue damage and improve repair after a heart attack.
A study has identified a new mechanism for how a gene mutation leads to the death of neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and a related form of dementia.
Scientists used a new approach to identify a promising therapeutic target for glioblastoma, which was previously overlooked in traditional approaches.
