New Insights Into the Aging Brain

New Insights Into the Aging Brain

The protein klotho has been shown to promote longevity and counteract aging-related impairments. Having more klotho seems to allow for longer and healthier lives, whereas a depletion of this molecule accelerates aging and may contribute to age-related diseases. Curiously, within…

New Immunotherapy Targeting Blood-Clotting Protein Protects Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer's Disease Models

Normally, the blood protein fibrin does not enter the brain. But in several neurological disorders, the blood-brain barrier—which keeps large molecules in the blood from entering the brain—becomes abnormally permeable, allowing fibrin to leak into the brain and trigger inflammation.…

Scientists Mimic the Earliest Stages of Human Development

Human embryos start as a tiny mass of cells that are all the same. The first step in growing from a homogenous ball of cells into a complex individual with distinct organs and tissues is for the cells to divide…

Scientists Examine Variations in a Cell's Protein Factory

You can think of a cell in your body like a miniature factory, creating a final product called proteins, which carry out various tasks and functions. In this cellular factory, genes control the series of sequential steps needed to create…

Gladstone Scientists Map Interactions Between Head and Neck Cancer and HPV Virus

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is widely known to cause nearly all cases of cervical cancer. However, you might not know that HPV also causes 70 percent of oropharyngeal cancer, a subset of head and neck cancers that affect the mouth, tongue,…

Jennifer Doudna Opens Lab at the Gladstone Institutes

Biochemist Jennifer A. Doudna, PhD, has revolutionized biomedical research—and so many other fields—by first unlocking the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technique in 2012. Now, she is moving part of her research efforts to the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco, where she…

The 2019 Sternfels Prize for Drug Safety Discoveries Contest Opens

The 2019 Sternfels Prize for Drug Safety Discoveries application window opened today, according to contest officials. The Sternfels Prize recognizes research to reduce the risk associated with the real-world use of pharmaceuticals. The Prize was created to incentivize pharmacologists, pharmacists,…

Marius Wernig Awarded the 2018 Ogawa-Yamanaka Stem Cell Prize by the Gladstone Institutes

Marius Wernig, MD, Ph.D., was announced today as the winner of the 2018 Ogawa-Yamanaka Stem Cell Prize by the Gladstone Institutes. Wernig is an associate professor of pathology at the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford…

Discovery of How HIV Hedges Its Bets Opens the Door to New Therapies

A stem cell is one with infinite possibilities. So, for decades, scientists have puzzled over how the cell chooses to keep being a stem cell and continue dividing or specialize into a specific cell type, like a heart or brain…

Article Suggests U.S. Recession Likely Before 2020 Election

Curtis Miller, a graduate student studying statistics at the University of Utah, recently published an article on his website that estimates that the probability an economic recession will occur in the United States before November 2020, given how long it…

Whole Slide Imaging meets Laser Microdissection: MMI launches MMI CellScan

Today, MMI launched their latest solution at the AACR meeting in Chicago. The MMI CellScan is a new module to combine Whole Slide Imaging with Laser Microdissection. For the first time, researchers are now able to scan full resolution digital…

Scientists Learn How to Avoid a Roadblock When Reprogramming Cells

Over a decade ago, Shinya Yamanaka and Kazutoshi Takahashi made a discovery that would revolutionize biomedical research and trigger the field of regenerative medicine. They learned how to reprogram human adult cells into cells that behave like embryonic stem cells.…

Cell Therapy Could Improve Brain Function for Alzheimer's Disease

Cell Therapy Could Improve Brain Function for Alzheimer's Disease

Like a great orchestra, your brain relies on the perfect coordination of many elements to function properly. And if one of those elements is out of sync, it affects the entire ensemble. In Alzheimer’s disease, for instance, damage to specific…

Unlocking a Cell's Potential to Regenerate the Heart

Unlocking a Cell's Potential to Regenerate the Heart

Some organisms have a remarkable capacity for regenerating tissue. If a fish or salamander suffers heart damage, for instance, their cells are able to divide and successfully repair the injured organ. Imagine if you could do the same. In the…
