Professor David Merryman explains how his team targeted the serotonin 2B receptor in animal models to preserve cardiac function six weeks after a heart attack.
Professor Martin Michaelis and Dr Mark Wass explain why new SARS-CoV-2 variants are emerging around the world and how vaccines will have to adapt in response.
Dr Ying Kai Chan discusses his latest research into how the delivery of AAV vectors for gene therapies can be made safer and more effective.
A year on from discovering COVID-19 we are starting to understand why some people suffer more severely after infection. Sadya Arnett discusses recent research into the interconnection between host inflammation and SARS-CoV-2.
Mark Mortenson, CSO of Clene Nanomedicine, discusses the use of proprietary gold nanocrystals as catalysts to prevent the progression of, and act as a treatment for, neurodegenerative disease.
This article introduces insights into combatting multidrug resistance via high-throughput laboratory evolution, pointing to the mechanisms of underlying evolved drug resistance.
Vito Quaranta, professor of biochemistry and pharmacology, discusses how cancerous cells adopting novel mechanisms of energy production could be sensitised to existing therapies with a focus on melanoma.
In this article, Ian Chan, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of biotech company Abpro, discusses the development of neutralising antibodies for SARS-CoV-2. Abpro’s neutralising antibody candidate ABP 300 is currently in Phase II/III trials.
