New research has uncovered a surprising role for so-called “jumping” genes that have traditionally been considered a source of genetic mutations responsible for a number of human diseases.
UT Southwestern researchers have identified factors that put patients with childhood-onset lupus at elevated risk for poor outcomes, such as end-stage renal disease or death, as they transition from pediatric to adult health care.
With NASA preparing to send humans to Mars in the 2030s, researchers are studying the physical effects of spending long periods in space.

It’s not just your legs and heart that get a workout when you walk briskly; exercise affects your brain as well.
A UT Southwestern research team has generated biological structures that resemble blastocysts, the structures that form from the early development of fertilized eggs in mammals, using previously established human embryonic stem cells derived from embryos donated for research and human-induced pluripotent stem cells generated from adult cells – collectively known as human pluripotent stem cells.
UT Southwestern researchers have identified the structure of a key member of a family of proteins called nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in three different shapes.
UT Southwestern scientists have identified key genes involved in brain waves that are pivotal for encoding memories.
A study led by UT Southwestern and Children’s Health researchers defines parameters for the number of white blood cells that must be present in children’s urine at different concentrations to suggest a urinary tract infection (UTI).
A new type of CAR T-cell therapy more than triples the expected length of remission for multiple myeloma patients who have relapsed several times, according to an international clinical trial with UT Southwestern as the lead enrolling site.
