Northwestern Medicine scientists have identified a specific bacteria that may be the cause of a rare lung infection that affects lung transplant patients.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have for the first time, determined the protective structure of the parainfluenza…
Northwestern Medicine scientists explored how HIV uses host factor FEZ-1 to move in cells to the nucleus.
Northwestern Medicine scientists are leading a research team that will study a pair of identical twins to determine how living in space for long durations affects the human body.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have shown that the bacteria that cause gonorrhea may have evolved mechanisms to stimulate white blood cells into killing other bacteria, promoting the survival of gonorrhea bacteria in the human reproductive tract.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have revealed age-dependent differences in cellular mechanisms for protection from herpes simplex virus encephalitis.
Jonathan Leis, PhD, professor in Microbiology-Immunology, received a grant to support his research on small molecule inhibitors that block the replication of enveloped viruses such as herpes and HIV.
Northwestern Medicine scientists demonstrated the ability of a protein, Cas2, in Legionella pneumophila to cleave nucleic acids resulting in increased infectivity in amoebae, its host organism and transmission vehicle for human infection of Legionnaires’ disease.
Northwestern Medicine scientists identified bacteria genes and key factors that are required for host colonization in squid, which may lead to better understanding how humans develop symbiotic relationships with beneficial bacteria.
