Northwestern Medicine scientists discovered functional links between dozens of potassium channel gene variants and neonatal epilepsy.
Sequencing known cardiac arrythmia genes in more than 20,000 people without an indication for genetic testing identified pathogenic variants in nearly one percent of individuals.
A new study has identified naturally occurring nano-sized particles that can block infection from broad strains of SARS-CoV-2 virus in preclinical studies.
A team of investigators have discovered a novel genomic variant that may help clinicians predict which patients will experience cardiotoxicity from a widely used chemotherapy drug, according to a Northwestern Medicine study.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have characterized several variants of the gene GRIK2 that cause nonsyndromic neurodevelopmental disorder.
Circulating tumor cells use the surface protein ICAM1 to strengthen stem cell programs and facilitate formation of tumor cell clusters, which can travel from primary tumors to other organs in the body.
In collaboration with Northwestern Medicine investigators, an international multi-center study has identified genetic factors associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 severity.
Feinberg’s Department of Pharmacology has expanded in size, faculty, and research focus, and is looking ahead to future growth in the field.
Scientists discovered a previously unknown receptor site in a voltage-gated sodium channel, suggesting that a commonly-used cancer drug could be used to target this channel and relieve pain.
