One idea for treating disease is to be able to program cells. Now, a major advance in synthetic biology allows for that kind of control that hasn't been seen before. The Institute for Protein Design...
Your genes could help lead to better care for a patient in the future. The All of Us Research Program is gathering data from people of all walks of life and backgrounds to create a national medical...
Can your genes indicate if you're more likely to have erectile dysfunction? A study conducted by UW Medicine, Kaiser Permanente Northern California, and University of California, San Francisco has...
It's an unusual approach, but one that Nathan White, an emergency medicine physician at Harborview Medical Center, thinks can make a difference when it comes to trauma. White was practicing Brazilian...
Bioengineers have cleared a major hurdle on the path to 3D printing replacement organs. It's a breakthrough technique for bioprinting tissues with exquisitely entangled vascular networks that mimic...
Type 2 diabetes is traditionally diagnosed in people 45 and older, but incidence of the disease is growing among children and teens. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 30 million...
The sci-Plex technique holds promise for cell biology research in cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, prenatal medicine and many other medical and basic science areas. Results from...
"What if we could build a remote control for cells?" That was the wild idea Kelly Stevens and Daniel Corbett had. Stevens, assistant professor of bioengineering and laboratory medicine and pathology...
