Artificial intelligence successfully predicts protein interactions
UT Southwestern and University of Washington researchers led an international team that used artificial intelligence (AI) and evolutionary analysis to produce 3D models of eukaryotic protein interactions.
UT Dallas-UT Southwestern break ground on bioengineering facility with support from Texas Instruments
Ground has been broken for construction of a new building that will catalyze a unique partnership between UT Southwestern Medical Center and UT Dallas, bringing their biomedical engineering programs together to foster innovative solutions for unmet medical needs.
UTSW-led research identifies new imaging biomarkers that predict antidepressant response
Research led by UT Southwestern has identified MRI brain imaging biomarkers that bring new levels of precision for prescribing the most effective antidepressants.
UTSW findings advance RAS inhibitors for use in fighting more cancers
New findings by UT Southwestern researchers help better understand the how one of the most commonly mutated genetic drivers of cancer passes signals that cause the disease.
Nerves may be key to blocking abnormal bone growth in tissue
Blocking a molecule that draws sensory nerves into musculoskeletal injuries prevents heterotopic ossification (HO), a process in which bone abnormally grows in soft tissue during healing
UT Southwestern designated founding Rare Disease Center of Excellence
UT Southwestern Medical Center has been selected as a Rare Disease Center of Excellence – charter members of an elite network of 31 centers nationally to expand access, and advance care and research for rare disease patients in the United States.
UTSW study finds potential strategy for fighting obesity
UT Southwestern scientists may have identified a method of safely mimicking the weight-loss benefits of a plant compound that – despite its harmful side effects – hold critical answers to developing therapies for obesity.
UTSW scientists eliminate key Alzheimer’s feature in animal model
A study by UT Southwestern researchers finds that changing the biochemistry of parts of brain cells abolished the formation of amyloid beta plaques in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease.
UTSW scientists identify protein that stops cell cycle in response to stress
UT Southwestern researchers have identified a new mechanism by which stress causes cells to stop dividing.
