Applying quantitative microscopy to live cells

Applying quantitative microscopy to live cells

Microscopy's got a long history. It was developed about 350 years ago for scientists to visualize things they could discern, but not describe. The two pioneers of microscopy were Antoine van Leeuwenhoek, who developed the first microscope and soon after the renowned scientist, Robert Hooke. [More]
UC San Diego scientists reveal surprising role for Hippo pathway in subduing tumor immunogenicity

UC San Diego scientists reveal surprising role for Hippo pathway in subduing tumor immunogenicity

Previous studies identified the Hippo pathway kinases LATS1/2 as a tumor suppressor, but new research led by University of California San Diego School of Medicine scientists reveals a surprising role for these enzymes in subduing cancer immunity. The findings, published in Cell on December 1, could have a clinical role in improving efficiency of immunotherapy drugs. [More]
New study describes role of protein that is crucial for melanoma cell survival

New study describes role of protein that is crucial for melanoma cell survival

The main goals of the Melanoma Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre are to identify biomarkers of tumour progression and to validate novel therapeutic targets in melanoma. [More]
TSRI study reveals how circadian clocks may influence cancer growth

TSRI study reveals how circadian clocks may influence cancer growth

A new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute describes an unexpected role for proteins involved with our daily "circadian" clocks in influencing cancer growth. [More]
Scientists show how key protein can be important driver of prostate cancer

Scientists show how key protein can be important driver of prostate cancer

Scientists at The Wistar Institute have demonstrated how a protein called TRAP1 - an important regulator of energy production in healthy and cancerous cells - is an important driver of prostate cancer and appears to be a valuable therapeutic target for the disease. [More]
