The spectrum of human genetic diversity today is vastly different than what it was only 200 to 400 generations ago.
Studying the molecular basis of progressive muscle weakness may lead to therapies to prevent or reduce symptoms.
The approach could lead to cell therapy treatments for some of the blood-forming disorders that accompany the common genetic condition.
The Stanford University faculty member will talk about a group of cell membrane receptors that are crucial for emotion, behavior, memory, vision, motion and many other activities. About 40 percent of medications act via these receptors.
Findings suggest new ways to study controls of early human development, causes of birth defects, and regeneration of damaged tissue.
The scientists were selected for their inventive ideas to transform their field of research and improve the health of the public.
Christopher Marshall underwent a seven-hour heart transplant surgery yesterday, Sept. 12, a UW Medical Center.
Findings challenge the assumption that, if a pulse is not restored soon, continuing resuscitation efforts is futile.
An international team of researchers has made headway toward a comprehensive listing of all the working parts of the human genome. More than 30 scientific papers appear today, include major work by UW researchers. The London Museum of Science celebrates with ceiling banners and aerial dancers.
