Inhibiting production of a key material produced by the mTOR pathway could slow tumor growth, according to a recent Northwestern Medicine study.
Inhibiting a novel protein variant within glioma stem cells may be a promising therapeutic approach to treat glioblastoma, according to a recent Northwestern Medicine study.
It’s been one year since the first case of COVID-19 was detected in the United States, and still Feinberg investigators continue to investigate the disease, its evolution and its impact on society.
A novel integrative computational technique allowed scientists to classify disease conditions at the molecular level using epigenomic data sets.
Prolonging a cellular defense response to inflammation could help regenerate the protective coating of axons that is degraded in diseases such as multiple sclerosis, according to a recent study.
Northwestern Medicine investigators have discovered that inhibiting tumor-associated myeloid cells ability to produce specialized metabolites called polyamines may improve the effectiveness of treatments for glioblastoma.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have engineered a novel antibody that revitalizes immune cell activity in a deadly brain cancer, according to a recent study.
Since March 2020, a team of Northwestern Medicine scientists have been tracking the evolution of SARS- CoV-2, specifically in the city of Chicago. Their work has been pivotal in understanding how the virus spread to Chicago and what new variants have emerged in the city.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered a conformational “switch” that determines the function of the SNARE protein Ykt6, with implications for synucleinopathies, according to a recent study.
