A firmer understanding of muscle fibrosis
Researchers describe how increased production of a microRNA promotes progressive muscle deterioration in a mouse model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), according to a study published online on January 2 in the Journal of Cell Biology. View News Article (2012-01-03)

CHECKING HOW CELLS GROW: New research dismisses a widely held assumption about cell growth
Research published today in Journal of Biology challenges an assumption about cell growth that underpins modern cellular biology. Ian Conlon and Martin Raff, of University College London, show that mammalian cells do not regulate their size in the way scientists have assumed they do since the 1970s. Conlon and Raff conducted a series of experiments, using Schwann cells from the sciatic nerve of... View News Article (2003-04-23)

Spontaneous fusion with macrophages empowers cancer cells to spread
Cancer cells that spontaneously fuse with macrophages, the immune system's healthy scavenger cells, play a key role in the metastasis, or spread of the cancer to other areas of the body. View News Article (2013-12-16)

Portuguese school teachers and scientists meet for a made to measure workshop
"Inspiring Science" is the name of the workshop for school teachers, to be held at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia (IGC), Portugal, from 13-15th April 2004. This innovative workshop, aimed at secondary school science teachers, is being co-organised by the IGC, the Instituto de Medicina Molecular (IMM), Portugal, and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Germany. The main... View News Article (2004-04-12)

Cell Biologists Identify New Tumor Suppressor for Lung Cancer
Cancer and cell biology experts at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have identified a new tumor suppressor that may help scientists develop more targeted drug therapies to combat lung cancer. View News Article (2009-01-06)

Children's Hospital study demonstrates how bone marrow transplant can cure sickle cell disease
A unique approach to bone marrow transplantation pioneered in part by a Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC physician has proven to be the only safe and effective cure for sickle cell disease, according to a new study. View News Article (2008-11-07)

Protein heals wounds, boosts immunity and protects from cancer
Hans Vogel, a professor in the biological sciences department, is the guest editor of a special issue of the journal Biochemistry and Cell Biology that focuses on lactoferrin, an important iron-binding protein with many health benefits. View News Article (2012-05-01)

Penn researchers find key developmental pathway activates lung stem cells
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine found that the activation of a molecular pathway important in stem cell and developmental biology leads to an increase in lung stem cells. Harnessing this knowledge could help develop therapies for lung-tissue repair after injury or disease. View News Article (2008-06-18)

Rutgers-Camden Scholar Identifies Genetic Patterning in Fruit Fly Development
No matter the species, from flies to humans, we all start the same: a single-cell fertilized egg that embarks on an incredible journey. The specifics of this journey are being uncovered at Rutgers University-Camden, where a biologist is researching how from one cell a jumble of many are able to organize and communicate, allowing life to spring forth. View News Article (2008-12-02)

Run amok enzyme causes same problems in both humans and fruit flies
An enzyme found at elevated levels in several human cancers has been linked to abnormal tumor growth in fruit flies, a discovery that provides a new model for understanding the link between stem cell biology and cancer, according to researchers at the University of Oregon. View News Article (2006-12-19)
