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)

Telomere length influences cancer cell differentiation
Researchers from the Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research in Tokyo have discovered that forced elongation of telomeres (extensions on the end of chromosomes) promotes the differentiation of cancer cells, probably reducing malignancy, which is strongly associated with a loss of cell differentiation.  View News Article (2013-06-28)

Intelligent microscopy
The sight of a researcher sitting at a microscope for hours, painstakingly searching for the right cells, may soon be a thing of the past, thanks to new software created by scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany.  View News Article (2011-01-25)
