  • GENcast: A Biological GPS That Guides Awareness through Cellular Space

    There’s no shame in contemplating how we managed to get around before GPS came to our phones. Some may argue that there is an overreliance on automation since maps have been a proven method of exploration and travel for centuries. Yet, access to technology like GPS has democratized travel and opened the door for society to explore our surroundings in ways few ever thought possible.

  • Yale Researchers Crack the Code of a Rare, Inherited Anemia

    Yale pediatrician and geneticist Patrick Gallagher, M.D., studies hereditary spherocytosis (HS), an inherited disease associated with hemolytic anemia, when red blood cells are destroyed faster than they are produced due to abnormal membranes. A novel mutation in the gene that encodes alpha-spectrin, a protein essential for normal red blood cell membranes, is responsible for many cases of recessive hereditary spherocytosis (rHS), the most severe form of the disease, reports Gallagher’s team

  • Urine Biomarkers Could Improve Diagnosis of Serious Kidney Allergic Reaction

    A team led by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers says it has identified two protein biomarkers in urine that may one day be used to better diagnose acute interstitial nephritis (AIN), an underdiagnosed but treatable kidney disorder that impairs renal function in the short term and can lead to chronic kidney disease, permanent damage or renal failure if left unchecked.

  • Publication in the Journal Clinical Cancer Research Uses NanoString's GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler to Discover Predictive Biomarkers for Immunotherapy

    NanoString Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSTG), a provider of life science tools for translational research and molecular diagnostic products, today announced a publication in the journal Clinical Cancer Research of a collaborative research study led by investigators from the Yale School of Medicine. This paper represents the fourth peer-reviewed publication to describe GeoMx DSP. The article, entitled “High-plex predictive marker discovery for melanoma immunotherapy treated patients using Digital Spatial Profiling,” used the GeoMx™ Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) to identify biomarkers that were predictive for response to immunotherapy for the treatment of melanoma.
