Researchers have shown that a specific area of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is a promising target for a pan-coronavirus vaccine that could offer some protection against new virus variants, common colds, and help prepare for future pandemics.

Researchers have developed a new method that can rapidly count the number of T cells in a tumour, helping to predict patient response to therapies.
Drug analysis at the Francis Crick Institute and University of Dundee has revealed 15 potential antivirals that could lead to new COVID-19 treatments.
Researchers have found a protein that, when inhibited in mice with cancer, increased the response to immunotherapy.
Researchers have shown in fruit flies that lipid droplets could prevent the kidney damage that leads to chronic kidney disease.
Researchers have developed a set of compounds designed to stop the malaria parasite being able to burst out of red blood cells and replicate.
Scientists have said that researchers need to be more aware of unintended mutations to human embryos following CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing.
Scientists observed that different cancers undergo the same genetic mutations at similar stages of evolution, the findings could become part of an ‘evolutionary rule book’ which would theoretically enable the prediction and prevention of cancer’s next evolutionary move.
The high-throughput screening (HTS) facility at the Francis Crick Institute in the UK provides a core service for Crick research groups. It enables scientists to use large-scale, unbiased screening technologies and approaches as part of their research. Nikki Withers spoke to the Science Technology Platform Head, Michael Howell, to hear…
More research into tuberculosis is now possible with the development of an optimisied mouse model that exhibits the same blood immune response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection as humans.
Scientists using a new motor neuron disease (MND) model have shown astrocytes may protect neurons from toxic TDP-43 protein aggregates in the early stages of disease.
Scientists have found that when two specific genes are deleted in benign tumour tissue in the intestines, it more rapidly develops into a tumour that is more likely to become cancerous.
