  • Huntington's disease: Hot on the trail of misfolded proteins' toxic modus operandi
    A Stanford University researcher describes the link between a misfolded protein and Huntington's disease. Exit Disclaimer
     
  • Clever Sequencing Improves CRISPR Reporting
    Stanford University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University researchers have shown a that long read lengths by a single molecule, real-time (SMRT) sequencing can provide a platform for measuring genome editing outcomes at any site of interest. This method of targeted genome editing with engineered enzymes allows for the introduction of precise sequence modifications at almost any site in the genome. Exit Disclaimer
     
  • Within sight: Light-activated drugs for restoring vision
    Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have developed a set of light-sensitive compounds called photoswitches that could be used to bypass damaged photoreceptors and restore vision to blind or visually impaired people

  • Third Pillar of Medicine: Cell Therapy
    University of California San Francisco researchers discuss the prospect of the usage of cell therapy being as common as treating the sick with drugs. Exit Disclaimer
     
  • Engineered Virus Capable of Improving Sight
    Researchers at the University of California Berkeley have created a virus and a non-invasive method to deliver genes to a difficult-to-reach population of cells of the eye to help restore sight. Exit Disclaimer

  • An OFF switch for pain
    Chemists at LMU Munich, in collaboration with colleagues in Berkeley and Bordeaux, have now shown in laboratory experiments that it is possible to inhibit the activity of pain-sensitive neurons using an agent that acts as a photosensitive switch. Exit Disclaimer
     
  • Correct Protein Folding
    Berkeley Lab Researchers Identify Structure of Key Control Element Behind Protein Misfolding That Can Lead to Disease Exit Disclaimer
     
  • "Pause switch" making immune therapies easier to control
    UCSF researchers have discussed the prospect of introducing a naturally occurring protein in bacteria into immune therapies to make them easier to regulate and less likely to cause side effects. Exit Disclaimer
     
  • Three Seeing Mice
    A team of researchers from UC Berkeley in collaboration with University of Munich and University of Washington researchers have discovered a chemical, AAQ, that temporarily restores some vision to blind mice. Exit Disclaimer

  • With A Flash Of Light, A Neuron's Function Is Revealed  Exit Disclaimer
    September 16, 2009
    There’s a new way to explore biology’s secrets. With a flash of light, scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley zeroed in on the type of neural cell that controls swimming in larval zebrafish.
