Emerging Stories

Gene could help explain insulin resistance

Shutting off a gene implicated in insulin resistance leads to damaged mitochondria and decreased exercise capacity in mice.

5/1/2016 - His research focuses on delineating the molecular mechanisms underling the pathogenesis of cardiomyopathies using patient-specific cardiomyocytes derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs), and also the development of biological therapies for heart failure.

Anti-tumor antibodies could counter atherosclerosis

7/20/2016 - A biological drug could be used to combat cardiovascular disease by targeting not mere risk factors such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure, but the actual lesions bearing direct responsibility: atherosclerotic plaques.
