In the News
- Dr. Chun-Li Zhang's research group reported in Stem Cell Reports that mature inhibitory neurons can be reprogrammed into a different type of neuron that creates the neurotransmitter lost in Parkinson’s disease.
- Dr. Eric Olson’s group has used CRISPR gene editing to halt the progression of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) in a large mammal. The research published in Science documents unprecedented improvement in the muscle fibers of dogs with DMD.
- Dr. Elizabeth Chen, a CRSM faculty member, received a 2018 Women in Cell Biology (WICB) Award for Excellence in Research from the American Society of Cell Biology.
- Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine developed a single cut CRISPR gene-editing technique that can potentially correct a majority of the 3,000 mutations that cause Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
- Dr. Hao Zhu's research group reported in Developmental Cell that cells in the liver with whole genome duplications, known as polyploid cells, can protect the liver against cancer.
- Dr. Ondine Cleaver's research group reported in Genes & Development that development of the endocrine pancreas is promoted by a weblike network of epithelial tubes that exist only transiently in the developing embryo.
- Dr. Vincent Tagliabracci, a CRSM faculty member, received a Herbert Tabor Young Investigator Award from the Journal of Biological Chemistry. This award recognizes promising young researchers that focus on the molecular and cellular basis of biological processes.
