  • 11th Anti-infectives Partnering and Deal-Making Conference (July 10-11, 2014, Boston, MA)
    GTC’s 11th Anti-infectives Partnering and Deal-Making Conference, taking place on July 10-11, 2014 in Boston, MA, will contribute to the on-going battle against the ever-changing infectious threats by having experts with direct experiences in the field discuss a wide variety of topics on infectious diseases. The agenda also allows time...
  • Adaptor protein role in diabetes, cancer treatments
    A protein known to be part of a complex communications network within the cell has also been found to be associated with important processes involved in cancer and diabetes. In a study that will be published Feb. 18 in Science Signaling, researchers identified a new role for the adaptor protein...
  • Coriell Life Sciences Prepares for the Whole-Genome Health Environment
    When the Coriell Institute launched its Coriell Personalized Medicine Collaborative (CPMC) research project in 2007, its mission was to understand how patients and their physicians react to having genetic information when planning out their health care strategies. The CPMC has now interviewed thousands of participants about their genetic disease risks,...
  • Seattle BioMed receives $10M NIAID grant to lead AIDS vaccine effort
    The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has awarded a 7-year, $9.8 million grant to develop an AIDS vaccine to four Seattle-based research organizations and Rockefeller University. The nonprofit Seattle Biomedical Research Institute will lead the research team, which will be made up of researchers from the University of...
  • Engineered molecules mark specific proteins inside a cell for destruction
    Like mobsters following strict orders, newly engineered molecules called “ubiquibodies” can mark specific proteins inside a cell for destruction – a molecular kiss of death that is paving the way for new drug therapies and powerful research tools. Led by professor Matthew DeLisa, chemical engineers at Cornell University have developed...
  • B-cells aggravate autoimmune diseases
    Scientists in Freiburg may have discovered a fundamental aggravating factor in autoimmune diseases. If B-lymphocytes lack the protein PTP1B, the cells will become hyperactive for stimulatory signals and can thus promote an autoimmune attack. This study offers an additional explanation to how B-cells regulate an immune response. In Germany, approximately...
  • Key enzyme in pancreatic cancer growth
    A study by the Imperial College London, funded by the U.K. research charity Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, examined the role of Hedgehog, whose usual job is to send signals to cells in embryos to divide and grow into the correct body parts. But while Hedgehog usually switches off when the...
  • Self-assembling cages built from DNA
    Move over, nanotechnologists, and make room for the biggest of the small. Scientists at the Harvard’s Wyss Institute have built a set of self-assembling DNA cages one-tenth as wide as a bacterium. The structures are some of the largest and most complex structures ever constructed solely from DNA, they report...
