Scripps Research Scientists Discover a Brain Cell Malfunction in Schizophrenia

Posted by MySDScience on December 28, 2012 at 6:30am 0 Comments

LA JOLLA, CA – December 27, 2011 – Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have discovered that DNA stays too tightly wound in certain brain cells of schizophrenic subjects. The findings suggest that drugs already in development for other diseases might eventually offer hope as a treatment for schizophrenia and related conditions in the elderly.

The research, now available online in the new Nature journal, Translational Psychiatry, shows the deficit is especially…

Salk scientists show nine genes at heart of epigenetic changes in induced pluripotent stem cells

LA JOLLA, CA—Salk scientists have identified a unique molecular signature in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), "reprogrammed" cells that show great promise in regenerative medicine thanks to their ability to generate a range of body tissues.

In this week's Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the Salk scientists and their collaborators at University of…

Personalized Cancer Treatments Approach Tipping Point

Joe Cantlupe, for HealthLeaders Media, September 27, 2012
 

When then President Richard Nixon in 1971 called for a "cure for cancer," he envisioned a crusade akin to the efforts that developed the atomic bomb and led to the moon landing.



But more than 40 years later, it has proven to be an elusive goal, and one that has changed dramatically over the decades. Now, the vision has transformed from seeking a singular cure for cancer…

Scripps researchers reassess heat waves against the backdrop of rising

temperatures

Scripps Institution of Oceanography / University of California, San Diego

A new study by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, suggests that the nature of California heat waves is changing due to global warming.

Climate researchers Alexander Gershunov and Kristen Guirguis detected a trend toward more humid heat waves that are expressed very…

Small droplets of friction-generated melts weaken faults and can lead to 'megaquakes'

Scripps Institution of Oceanography / University of California, San Diego

Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have come a step closer to deciphering some of the basic mysteries and mechanisms behind earthquakes and how average-sized earthquakes may evolve into massive earthquakes.

In a paper published in the Aug. 30 issue of the journal Nature, Scripps…

Scripps Research Institute Receives $20 Million to Shed Light on HIV Drug Resistance

Posted by Emmanuel Gutierrez on September 24, 2012 at 3:18pm 0 Comments

LA JOLLA, CA, September 19, 2012 

The Scripps Research Institute has received a grant totaling approximately $20 million over five years from the National Institutes of Health to research the development of drug resistance in HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

The grant will create a new consortium, the HIV Interaction and Viral Evolution (HIVE) Center, to better understand drug resistance and lay the groundwork for developing new anti-HIV treatments.

“We’re excited about…
