UW Medicine researchers have developed a technique for inserting a gene into specific cell types in the adult brain in an animal model.

Research has identified a new way that viruses keep infected cells alive – so the viruses can use the cells to reproduce. The finding suggests it may be possible to target this process to treat viral infections.

A new cryo-electron microscope, which can reveal cellular and viral structures at near-atomic resolution,  will soon be arriving in Seattle.

Textbook diagrams of cells show a cursory membrane, nucleus and mitochondria. They have never adequately conveyed cells' variation and complexity.
