Cellular therapeutics – using intact cells to treat and cure disease – is a hugely promising new approach in medicine but it ...

Gel-like padding being developed by a Stanford Bio-X team could help cells survive injection and heal spinal cord injuries

A team of Bio-X scientists is developing a gel to help protect cells from the trauma of being injected into an injury site. The work could help speed cell-based therapies for spinal cord injuries and other types of damage. ... Full story

Proteins Hey1 and Hey2 Ensure That Inner Ear 'Hair Cells' Are Made at the Right Time, in the Right Place

Two Johns Hopkins neuroscientists have discovered the “molecular brakes” that time the generation of important cells in the inner ear cochleas of mice. These “hair cells” translate sound waves into electrical signals that are carried to the brain and are interpreted as sounds. If the arrangement of the cells is disordered, hearing is impaired. ...

Scientists discover RNA modifications in some unexpected places

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The so-called central dogma of molecular biology—that DNA makes RNA which makes protein—has long provided a simplified explanation for how genetic information is deciphered and translated in living organisms. ... Full story
