The tumour microenvironment can prevent some T cells from carrying out their immunotherapeutic duties. In this Q&A, Dr Brian Shy, Clinical Instructor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Laboratory Medicine, describes a recent study wherein he and fellow scientists discovered a strategy to strengthen T cells…

The new immune gene networks have implications for developing immunotherapies and understanding autoimmune diseases.
Researchers have developed a novel class of therapeutics, called feedback disruptors, that could have the potential to be resistance-proof drugs.
The capability to edit genes has been transformative in opening therapeutic avenues for hitherto untreatable diseases and aiding biological insight. Scientists have now discovered a way to enhance this process using retrons, making the process more efficient and effective.
Researchers have identified a process that amplifies changes in gene expression, which could be harnessed to accelerate stem cell differentiation.
Scientists shows targeting cholesterol or phosphatidylinositol phosphate (PIP) could be a promising strategy to combat multiple coronaviruses.
Which immune cells contribute towards immune-induced neurodegeneration and how could this knowledge enable conditions such Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis to be treated?
Researchers have identified which SARS-CoV-2 proteins physically associate with proteins in human cells, revealing potential drug targets to treat the COVID-19 coronavirus.
A new experimental drug was shown by researchers to restore natural brain rhythms in mouse models of Alzheimer’s and promote learning and memory.
Researchers have used machine learning to predict the conditions needed for stem cells to develop a certain way, which could be used to grow 3D organ models.
