  • Targeting the engine room of the cancer cell

    Researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) have developed a highly innovative computational framework that can support personalized cancer treatment by matching individual tumors with the drugs or drug combinations that are most likely to kill them. The study by Dr. Andrea Cali more

  • Tumor-like spheres help scientists discover smarter cancer drugs

    Cancer is a disease often driven by mutations in genes. As researchers learn more about these genes, and the proteins they code for, they are seeking smarter drugs to target them. The ultimate goal is to find ways to stop cancer cells from multiplying out of control, thereby blocking the growth and more

  • How a genetic mutation can interfere with the powerhouses of cells

    Dr. Nora Vögtle, head of an Emmy Noether junior research group at the Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine of the University of Freiburg, together with her team and in cooperation with paediatricians from Europe, Australia and the USA, has identified the molecular consequences of a previ more

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Principles of Chromosome Structure and Function

Chromosomes are arguabely one of the most important structures inside cells. Several meters of DNA are compacted into micrometer-sized assemblies in every human cell. Recent advances in our understanding of how this is achieved, and of its implications on nuclear functions, have been breathtaking. I


New Strategy to Identify Small Molecule Therapies: Usher Syndrome III Case Study

Characterized by progressive deafness, blindness and variable balance disorder, Usher syndrome type III (USH3) is caused by destabilizing mutations in the gene encoding the clarin-1 protein (CLRN1).
