Hiding Transplants from Our Immune Systems: Nanoparticles deliver gene-suppressor, decreasing risk of transplant rejection

Hiding Transplants from Our Immune Systems: Nanoparticles deliver gene-suppressor, decreasing risk of transplant rejection

Yale researchers develop a nanoparticle delivery system that releases a siRNA capable of protecting transplanted organs from rejection by the immune system. The nanoparticles have the potential to inhibit immune system’s recognition of transplants.

A Better Alzheimer’s Drug: New drug restores memory in mice with fewer side effects

A Better Alzheimer’s Drug: New drug restores memory in mice with fewer side effects

Yale researchers repair memory deficits in Alzheimer’s mice using a drug that targets abnormal protein interactions in the brain

The Search: Mathematical model explains diversity in cancer cell movement

The Search: Mathematical model explains diversity in cancer cell movement

If cancer cells can’t find the highways of the body, they can’t spread and become more lethal. A mathematical model developed by Andre Levchenko and JinSeok Park of the Yale Systems Biology Institute provides a framework to explain cell migration behavior that can be implemented down the line to keep cells searching longer.

What’s Hot, Dense, and Spins Like Crazy?

What’s Hot, Dense, and Spins Like Crazy?

Just moments after the big bang, all matter existed in a state called the quark-gluon plasma. Yale professor Helen Caines and her group work with the STAR collaboration, together aiming to discover the properties of our universe this early in its history.

Study of the Center of the Earth

Study of the Center of the Earth

Scientists may finally be able to model magnetic fields more efficiently in the lab, thanks to the development of eGaIn, a magnetic liquid metal with unprecedentedly high magnetic and conductive properties.

A “Beta” Way to Treat Type I Diabetes: A Sweet Discovery

A “Beta” Way to Treat Type I Diabetes: A Sweet Discovery

Diabetes is caused by the immune system’s attack on its own beta cells. Yale researchers have uncovered a population of beta cells resistant to these immune attacks, providing hope for those with Type I diabetes.

Chilling Precision: Cooling and trapping molecules with lasers

Chilling Precision: Cooling and trapping molecules with lasers

Researchers at Yale have developed a technique to cool down and levitate molecules in space, enabling new experiments that could revolutionize our understanding of fundamental physics.

It’s Not Just in Your Head

It’s Not Just in Your Head

Yale researchers have discovered a method of identifying prenatally damaged neurons that become susceptible to mental disorders after birth.

If It’s Broke, Don’t Fix It: Curing Brain Cancer by Preventing DNA Repair

If It’s Broke, Don’t Fix It: Curing Brain Cancer by Preventing DNA Repair

Broken DNA can put us on the path towards fixing cancer. Research by Peter Glazer and Ranjit Bindra of the Yale Cancer Center suggests that carcinogenic mutations most current therapies aim to repair can instead serve as selecting agents for better drug targeting with DNA repair inhibitors.
