Recordings of neurons in a little-studied part of the brain associated with memory show an unexpected increase in activity in older brains, a finding that may suggest a new target for therapies to combat memory loss.
In a recent study, Northwestern Medicine scientists described a new process that explains how the adhesion between epithelial cells occurs.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have identified the molecular machinery that releases paused gene expression, a finding that helps explain how important developmental genes jumpstart simultaneously.
Behnam Nabet, ’15 PhD, who just completed his doctorate in the Driskill Graduate Program in Life Sciences, studied how mutated Ras genes turn normal cells into cancer cells in a new publication.
Northwestern Medicine scientist Jeffrey Savas, PhD, and colleagues identified a receptor that sorts proteins in synapses, a finding that may augment future treatments for multiple neurological diseases and disorders.
A new technology called “Sticky-flares” developed by nanomedicine scientists offers the first real-time method to track and observe the dynamics of RNA distribution as it is transported inside living cells.
Two Northwestern Medicine studies help explain how components of the cytoskeleton called intermediate filaments move and assemble to protect cells.
A Northwestern Medicine study has uncovered a signaling process that regulates the inflammation that damages organs in autoimmune diseases.
Studying patients with a rare form of dementia called primary progressive aphasia has given scientists a new understanding of the way the brain comprehends language.
