Featured Findings:

 

 

  • The Importance of Gene Position for Muscle Development and Integrity 
    • The C. elegans model is used to study mutations in the nuclear structural protein lamin A, which produce rare, tissue-specific diseases called laminopathies. By inducing a human laminopathy in C. elegans, not only did they understand the molecular basis of the disease, they found a way to counteract the dominant defects of the mutation, suggesting a novel therapeutic pathway. Read more

 

  • Census' in the Zebrafish's Brain
    • Scientists have found that, following a brain injury, zebrafish are able to form new neurons and integrate them into the nervous system, which is the reason for their brain regeneration ability. This is comparable to humans and other mammals and will likely play a major role in future regeneration studies. Read more
