Researchers have used CRISPR and cryogenic electron microscopy to unravel the workings of two receptors involved in diseases such as cancer and COVID-19.
A team has revealed that viruses ‘hijack’ a molecular process in the cell, inhibiting the body’s response to viral infection.
A study has said that restoring a particular protein's activity could be a new therapeutic strategy to treat glioblastoma.
A review of pain research suggests it is biased towards males, despite most chronic pain sufferers being female, resulting in ineffective analgesics.
Researchers have uncovered the structure of nonribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs), an important ingredient in drug production.
Exceptions to high quality research should not be made simply because of the COVID-19 pandemic, argue scientists in a new commentary.
Several new advances have been made in the field of drug discovery for diabetes – here, three of the most recent have been rounded up.
Many studies indicating that DNA nanostructures can enter cells more readily than simple DNA strands are 'flawed'.
Scientists have uncovered a promising drug candidate that appears to normalise the vocal communication mechanism deficiencies experienced in genetic disorder ADNP.
Scientists have developed an algorithm that can more accurately predict cognitive decline that leads to Alzheimer’s disease. Early preventive measures may help delay and even halt the disease’s onset.
Scientists have identified novel genes associated with a specific form of schizophrenia the discovery will aid diagnosis and development of treatments...
