Drug Discovery System Designed to Identify Difficult Targets

Nerve cells in brain

A lab in the U.K. developed a system for discovering new therapies that identify therapy targets linked to enzymes, some found in neurodegenerative diseases, previously considered too difficult to address. . . . → Read More: Drug Discovery System Designed to Identify Difficult Targets

Tissue-Engineered Heart Chamber Model Developed

Left-ventricle heart model

A university bioengineering group developed a model of a left ventricle, the heart chamber that pumps blood to the body, made with engineered heart muscle tissue to replace animals for drug testing. . . . → Read More: Tissue-Engineered Heart Chamber Model Developed

A genetics lab in the U.K. revealed that a leading technique for editing genomes produces more unwanted damage to the edited genomes than previously understood. . . . → Read More: More Damage Detected from Crispr-Cas9 Edits

RNA Nanoparticles Designed for Brain Cancer Therapy

Brain cell networks

Medical researchers and material scientists devised a technique for delivering tiny particles of genetic material to the brain, which help lab mice shrink or remove their brain tumors and survive longer. . . . → Read More: RNA Nanoparticles Designed for Brain Cancer Therapy

Gene Therapy Shown to Reduce Extreme High Cholesterol

Heart check

A gene therapy technique that stops production of a targeted protein is shown in tests with monkeys to reduce levels of harmful cholesterol, but also expose potential risks associated with the technique. . . . → Read More: Gene Therapy Shown to Reduce Extreme High Cholesterol
