In addition to the impactful work Mauro did as founder of CEG, he co-founded Myelin Media, a video game publishing company that would go on to release titles on PC and console in over 50 countries. ...
Things are heating up in the world of CRISPR gene editing. With the first human trials using the experimental technology set to commence soon, the research community has been facing a series of controversial studies suggesting the process is not as safe or accurate as previously thought. Now, a team of scientists from the University of Texas at Austin claims a simple enzyme change could he
An intriguing new study from Columbia University Irving Medical Center has found that the same gene associated with a condition responsible for autoimmune-related hair loss could be recruited to help our immune cells better target tumors...

The bacteria that call your gut home can have a tremendous impact on your overall health, but exactly how the bugs do so is a web that's still being untangled. To investigate, researchers at Harvard Medical School have deleted a single gene from one gut bacteria species and found that it alters the metabolism of the host, reducing their weight gain...

Finding ways to activate or deactivate specific neurons in the brain could be the path to treating disorders like Parkinson's or epilepsy, but usually that requires surgery. Now, Caltech researchers have developed a three-part technique that's far less invasive, combining ultrasound waves, gene therapy and drugs that has been able to affect memory formation in mice...

Australian researchers have identified a new gene that plays a fundamental role in regulating the production of pro-inflammatory proteins. It's hoped the discovery of this previously unknown genetic mechanism will offer scientists exciting new pathways to treat a variety of diseases, from cancer to diabetes...

The steady march of aging might not have to be so steady, according to a growing body of research. The latest development, from a team at the University at Buffalo, has now isolated a single gene that controls senescence, the process that stops cells from dividing, and found how easily that can spread among neighboring cells. That makes the gene a crucial target for future work into anti-a
An international team of researchers has successfully regenerated spinal tissue in rat models using a new gene therapy designed to break down scar tissue and allow new nerve cells to grow. The therapy, which used a common antibiotic as the on/off switch to activate the treatment for two months, resulted in rats with spinal injuries relearning complex hand movements...

Fat may be a villain of our time, but it's not fair to paint it all with the same brush. There are actually several types of the stuff – white fat, which stores excess energy, and brown fat, which the body readily burns to keep warm. Now, researchers at the Salk Institute have identified the protein that allows brown fat to expend energy, opening up a new potential avenue for treating obesity
There's been a flurry of research recently trying to pin down a single gene that could be responsible for obesity, but the fact is genes don't work like that. Despite strong evidence for specific genes accounting for some types of hereditary or severe obesity, the reality is that excessive weight gain can be founded in a variety of different mechanisms, from an inability to regulate appetite
