James Houk, PhD, former chair and professor of Physiology whose Feinberg career spanned more than 40 years, passed away on June 11.
A genetic screen has revealed previously unknown regulators of Foxp3, a transcription factor that, when deactivated, may improve patient response to aggressive cancers.
Northwestern Medicine investigators undertook a massive, new, daily home-monitoring program of patients presumed positive for COVID-19 with the assistance of nurses, nurse practitioners, a large workforce of medical students, physicians’ assistants and daily questionnaires delivered through electronic health records.
Neurons in the olfactory cortex coordinate to boost the sense of smell when anticipating an odor, according to a Northwestern Medicine study.
In the past decade, synthetic biology — the reengineering of organisms and their genetic information so they can produce a new substance or gain a new ability — has rapidly emerged to the forefront of modern-day science. Northwestern’s Center for Synthetic Biology has been leading the way.
