The Wyss Centre has announced a collaborative project to improve understanding of the brain cancer glioblastoma and develop new personalised therapies.
Researchers have revealed that the WDR74 protein plays a key role in lung cancer and melanoma, including metastasis, indicating it may be a potential drug target.
A research team have found a signalling pathway which plays a critical role in the maturation of periodontal ligament, providing information for the development of dental treatments.
Currently used for breast cancer, tamoxifen could be useful in preventing the progression of myotubular myopathy, a severe genetic disease...

Scientists in Switzerland have constructed an enzyme than can penetrate a mammalian cell and accelerate the release of a hormone. This then activates a gene switch that triggers the creation of a fluorescent protein.
Scientists in Switzerland reveal the mechanisms behind the protective role of oestrogen against developing type 2 diabetes.
Scientists at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) have deciphered the mechanisms that link obesity with type-2 diabetes at the cellular level, thus explaining the reasons behind an association that is already well known.
Since the early seventies, scientists have been developing brain-machine interfaces; the main application being the use of neural prosthesis in paralyzed patients or amputees. A prosthetic limb directly controlled by brain activity can partially recover the lost motor function. This is achieved by decoding neuronal activity recorded with electrodes and…
