Northwestern Medicine scientists explored how the physical arrangement of genetic material organizes within a cell’s nucleus and influences the cell’s function.
Scientists discovered that a specific gene that starts to build a link between cilia motility and cell polarity in a recent study.
Brian Mitchell, PhD, assistant professor of Cell and Molecular Biology, received the Marine Biology Laboratory Nikon Fellowship to advance his research on the development of multi-ciliated cells using microscopy.
A recent study co-authored by Northwestern Medicine scientist Robert Goldman, PhD, and colleagues suggests that degradation of lamin B1, a protein located in the nucleus of cells, helps suppress tumor formation.
In a recent study, co-author Dileep Varma, PhD, assistant professor of Cell and Molecular Biology, helped explain why the sequential degradation of key proteins is important for normal cell cycle progression.
In a recent study, Northwestern Medicine scientists described a new process that explains how the adhesion between epithelial cells occurs.
Northwestern Medicine scientists will lead an interdisciplinary project funded by the National Institutes of Health to invent, develop and test an implantable drug delivery system to protect high-risk individuals from HIV infection.
Two Northwestern Medicine studies help explain how components of the cytoskeleton called intermediate filaments move and assemble to protect cells.
A study coauthored by Northwestern Medicine scientists found that normal cells stop proliferating when they lose important intracellular structures called centrioles, but cancer cells continue to multiply.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have identified two drugs that stimulate stem cells in the central nervous system with the potential to repair the protective coating around neurons damaged in multiple sclerosis.
