    Tissue Vulnerability and Protein Characterization in Alzheimer’s Disease

    By Samantha Bussell Sep 23, 2016
    Alzheimer’s disease (AD) – the most common form of dementia – is characterized by the aggregation of amyloid β (Aβ), tau in amyloid plaques, and neurofibrillary tangles that spread progressively across brain tissues. However, the mechanisms that govern selective vulnerability of specified tissues is widely debated. Read More >

    Leveraging Human Tissue for Cell Type Conversation

    By Lauren Vagnone Aug 15, 2016
    Direct reprogramming of somatic cells has tremendous potential to advance applications in disease modeling, drug discovery, and gene and cell therapies. A study conducted by Duke University which depicts the plasticity of cells and their ability to “reprogram” for differing functions. Read More >
