An autonomous strategy for molecular discovery could enable the exploration of a far broader chemical space than is possible with conventional approaches. In this article, Niamh Morris from Rosalind Franklin Institute outlines why activity-directed synthesis (ADS) could be the answer, providing examples of how this technique has the potential to…
Trinity College Dublin has developed a new technique that accurately determines the state of macrophages.
Understanding how Staphylococcus aureus bacteria colonises skin affected by atopic dermatitis could lead to new treatments that help prevent the spread of antibiotic resistance, say scientists.
Researchers have found that an OPA1-targeted gene therapy can treat dominant optic atrophy in pre-clinical trials.
Researchers have identified that autoreactive B cells and a protein that enables them to invade joints could be promising drug targets for the most common inflammatory arthritis.
Scientists have implicated toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) in age-related macular degeneration and shown that knocking it out can improve symptoms in animal models.
Researchers have revealed that inhibiting IL-17 could prevent the effects of autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis.
A study has discovered that the PKM2 protein plays a role in regulating immune cells and blocking this could be a potential treatment for inflammatory diseases.
A study on how Polycombs regulate cellular identity could lead to alternative treatments for patients with drug-resistant cancer.
A study has used EEG to investigate the neuron networks that act abnormally in the condition, providing a significant step in the search for treatments.
