Linking air pollution and lung disease

17 May 2023 | By

USC researchers gain valuable insights into the biological processes underlying the association between air pollution and lung disease. By unravelling the mechanisms involved, researchers are hopeful that new strategies can be developed to mitigate the adverse effects of pollution exposure and improve the prevention and treatment of related diseases.

USC researchers zoom into human genome with mammal DNA

12 May 2023 | By

USC researcher Dr Steven Gazal and his team have identified human genome base pairs that have remained constant over millions of years of mammalian evolution. These base pairs are linked to human disease. Using DNA from 240 mammal species, they identified genetic variations affecting an individual's survival and reproduction.
