Navdeep Chandel, PhD, David W. Cugell Distinguished Professor in Medicine-Pulmonary and Cell and Molecular Biology, focuses on the role of metabolism and signaling in disease.
Northwestern Medicine scientists demonstrate that exposure to air pollution causes a stress response characterized by elevation in the level of the stress hormone adrenaline.
David Kamp, MD, completed his residency and fellowship at Northwestern, where he now studies a range of lung disorders as well as cellular apoptosis, a process of programmed cell death.
Recently published research in Human Molecular Genetics shows that removing too much of the enzyme HDAC3 has a toxic effect on the nervous system. The expression of this enzyme is inhibited by drugs being studied as potential treatment options for cancer and neurodegeneration
Findings published by Northwestern Medicine scientists in Molecular Cell suggest that the upregulation of protein WDR5 may be crucial in prostate cancer development.
For his work studying how environmental stress affects the lungs, GR Scott Budinger, MD, associate professor in Medicine-Pulmonary and Cell and Molecular Biology, was recently elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation.
Research by Seth Corey, MD, MPH, professor in pediatrics-hematology, oncology, and stem cell transplantation and cell and molecular biology, was recently published.
Published in Developmental Cell, the Mitchell Lab’s discovery could someday affect scientists’ understanding of the way centriole duplication goes awry in cancer development.
A new class of experimental drug-like small molecules is showing great promise in targeting a brain enzyme to prevent early memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease.
