Collaborative research has revealed two hallmarks of COVID-19 infection associated with more severe symptoms that can be identified by a blood test.
A study has shown that breast cancer cells are protected by healthy cells in the lungs of mice, allowing them to hibernate before growing into tumours.
Researchers have discovered that a specific subset of gamma delta T cells can be found in higher numbers of breast cancer survivor tissue, indicating its role in fighting the condition.
The researcher Sir Peter Ratcliffe and two others have been jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine 2019.
MSD and the Francis Crick Institute will work together on a project to identify disease targets for motor neuron disease.
Researchers have used a new method to understand how antibiotics fight TB, which can guide future drug developments.
Flow cytometry has played a key role in drug development, largely due to its ability to measure up to twenty parameters on single cells or particles suspended in a fluid stream. Conor Fitzpatrick discusses how the rise of high-throughput flow cytometry has contributed to the advancements in drug discovery...
Scientists are a step closer to understanding which genes are responsible for early-onset Alzheimer's disease in people with Down syndrome...
A gene signature in the bloodstream could reveal whether someone is going to develop active tuberculosis (TB) disease months before symptoms begin.
Detailed brain cell analysis has helped researchers uncover new mechanisms thought to underlie Parkinson's disease...
The mechanism our immune cells use to clear bacterial infections like tuberculosis might also be implicated in Parkinson's disease...
A team of researchers in the UK have discovered crucial new processes that allow malaria parasites to escape red blood cells and infect other cells, thus offering potential new treatment targets.
